State House, Boston, December 1, 1920. 
To the Honorable Senate and House of Representatives. 

The First Annual Report of the Department of Public Wel- 
fare, covering the year from December 1, 1919, to November 
30, 1920, is herewith respectfully presented.

REPORT 



Department of Public Welfaee 



Part I 



Geneeal Work of the Department 



ORGANIZATION OF THE EEPOET. 



The following report is divided for convenience into three 
parts. 

Part I deals with the general work of the Department, its 
duties, both supervisory and administrative. This part is the 
main text of the report, and is published only with the full 
report. 

Part II is devoted entirely to the duties of the Department 
with reference to private charitable enterprises. It is published 
as a separate pamphlet and serves as a handbook of the in- 
corporated charities of the Commonwealth. It contains an 
introductory analysis of the year's investigations of petitions for 
the incorporation of charitable enterprises under General Laws, 
chapter 180, section 6; also an account of the inspection of 
charitable corporations, under General Laws, chapter 121, sec- 
tion 7. The main body of this part of the report is given up 
to abstracts of the annual returns made to the Department by 
private charitable corporations under the requirements of 
General Laws, chapter 180, section 12. 

Part III contains an introductory analysis of the year's in- 
spections of almshouses, together with an abstract of conditions 
found at each institution. At the end of this part is a chapter 
on poor relief, which contains text and tabulated analysis of the 
returns of poor persons relieved, made by the respective cities 
and towns under the provisions of General Laws, chapter 117, 
section 33. Part III is published as a separate pamphlet, and 
serves as a handbook for almshouse w^ardens and other local 
public relief officials. 

For convenience in publishing, the index to each part is to 
be found at the end of its ow^n text instead of at the end of 
the book.

THE NEW DEPARTMENT. 

Chapter 350 of the General Acts of 1919, reorganizing the 
several State departments, became effective December 1 of that 
year. This, therefore, is the first report of the new Department 
of Public Welfare, though it is the forty-second report of the 
body which has had charge of the public relief functions of the 
Commonwealth since September, 1864. The reorganization 
statute made but few changes in the functions of the Depart- 
ment, though it made one very considerable addition thereto. 

1 On January 1, 1921, the former Commissioner retired and Richard K. Conant of Lincoln 
was appointed to the five-year term. 



4 DEP.\RTMEXT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

Its real effect was the remolding of the inner organization, 
abolishing the State Board of Charity, and setting up in its 
stead a single Commissioner who is the sole administrative 
head, but who is subject, in the methods and policies which he 
may adopt for putting the functions of the Department into 
execution, to the vote of an advisory unpaid Board of six 
members. 

The reorganization placed in the Department the State In- 
firmary, the Massachusetts Hospital School, the Massachusetts 
Training Schools and the Homestead Commission. For pur- 
poses of organization the State Infirmary w^as placed in the 
Division of Aid and Relief, the Massachusetts Hospital School 
w^as placed in the Division of Child Guardianship, and the three 
Massachusetts training schools constitute the Division of Juve- 
nile Training. For convenience in this report, the reports upon 
the five institutions are grouped together at the beginning of 
Part I. The Homestead Commission, under the reorganization, 
has become the Subdivision of Housing and Town Planning. 
Its work is reported upon beginning with page 136. 

In its new form the Department of Public Welfare carries 
out the following major functions: — • 

1. The supervisory direction of its five State institutions enumerated 
above. 

2. Visitation and inspection of city and town almshouses. 

3. Visitation and inspection of the five county training schools. 

4. Visitation and inspection of all children supported by the several 
cities and towns. 

5. Visitation and inspection of all adults supported in families, other 
than their own, by cities and towns. 

6. Supervision of Mothers' Aid rendered by cities and towns. 

7. Reception and classification of the annual returns of cities and 
towns relative to poor persons supported and relieved and the cost thereof. 

8. The development of living quarters for citizens in accordance with 
the homestead act. 

9. Visitation and inspection of wayfarers' lodges and public lodging 
houses. 

10. Visitation and inspection of private incorporated charitable agencies. 

11. Investigation of all petitions for the incorporation of private chari- 
ties. 

12. Requirement and reception of annual returns from all incorj)orated 
private charitable agencies. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 5 

13. The investigation as to the legal settlement of persons, possibly 
State charges, who have been supported, relieved or buried by cities and 
towns, and of sane inmates of State institutions. 

14. Directing public relief to unsettled persons by cities and towns. 

15. The transfer of sane paupers from one institution to another. 

16. The sending of paupers to the places within and without the Com- 
monwealth w^here they belong. 

17. The care and maintenance of delinquent, neglected and dependent 
children, coming into the custody of the Department through court com- 
mitment or otherwise. 

18. The execution of the several laws concerning infants and the 
licensing of infant boarding houses. 

19. The licensing of lying-in hospitals. 

20. The institutional custody and treatment of juvenile offenders com- 
mitted by the courts to the State institutions for juvenile training, and 
the care of these children in families w^hen on parole. 

21. General supervision of the work of the several city and town 
planning boards under the provisions of General Laws, chapter 121, sec- 
tions 23 through 27. 

RULES AND REGULATIONS. 

Rules and regulations governing the Division of Child 
Guardianship, the supervision of Mothers' Aid, and the investi- 
gation of petitions for charters for private charities have been 
formulated by the Commissioner and approved by the Board. 
These regulations are now in active operation. 



THE ACT REORGANIZING THE DEPARTMENT.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR LEGISLATION. 

The following are the recommendations of the Commissioner 
for legislative action as stated in the following report, which 
was forwarded to the Secretary of the Commonwealth as re- 
quired by General Acts of 1919, chapter 131: — 

Exemption of Certain Institution Employees from Civil 
Service Rules and Regulations. 
In the institutional service falling under my direction, civil 
service rules and regulations applying to engineers, firemen and 
head farmers give rise to the same difficulties that were formerly 
met in corresponding groups of employees in the institutions 
under the Department of Mental Diseases. In that group, 
these difficulties have been removed by the provisions of section 
80 of chapter 350 of the General Acts of 1919. The reasoning 
of the exemption in section 80 is sound. Engineers and firemen 



8 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

are all licensed men with standardized hours and pay. If the 
institution is to compete in the open market for their service, 
it must be free to act quickly; and because the position is one 
peculiarly of trust touching the lives and safety of bedridden 
inmates, the power to discharge should be complete. It is no 
violence to the proper extension of our civil service law and 
rules that these groups should be exempted. As this fact is 
already recognized by the exemption of section 80, it should be 
made uniformly applicable to all other institutions of the Com- 
monwealth. I therefore recommend an amendment to section 
89 of said chapter 350 of the General Acts of 1919 extending 
the exemption to all institutions in this Department. 

To Increase the Age Limit for Dependent Children 

UNDER THE MoTHERS' AlD LaW. 

Under the provisions of the Mothers' Aid law (chapter 763, 
Acts of 1913) aid may be given to mothers and their dependent 
children under fourteen years of age. All children over that 
age must be pressed by the overseers of the poor to go to work. 
This qualification is absolute, so that a child reaching its four- 
teenth birthday must stop school and go to work. In many 
cases this birthday falls only a month or two ahead of gradua- 
tion. 

At the time the Mothers' Aid law was enacted, the age limit 
for compulsory school attendance was fourteen. Since that 
time, the age limit has, for many purposes, been advanced to 
sixteen. In accord with this tendency the law now permits the 
Commonwealth to pay for schooling for its minor wards over 
fourteen years of age who show themselves capable of such 
training. To bring the age limit named in the Mothers' Aid 
law from fourteen to sixteen w^ould be in direct accord with the 
trend of our legislation, without an undue increase in the group 
receiving Mothers' Aid. I therefore recommend that this 
change be made. 



Part 1.1 GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 



To Authorize the Department of Public Welfare to 
ASSIST THE Court in Certain Cases concerning Ille- 
gitimate Children. 

It has been for many years a provision of our statutes that 
the Commonwealth or local relief officials, in view of the public 
burden likely to accrue in the support of illegitimate children, 
could bring action against the alleged father. The old statute, 
Revised Laws, chapter 82, relating to the support of illegitimate 
children, was, in fact, a civil action brought by the mother of 
the child against the alleged father. Damages recovered were 
generally small and of little consequence in relieving the public 
burden of supporting the child. Chapter 563, Acts of 1913, 
which is our new illegitimacy statute, changed the nature of 
the proceeding from a civil action in contract to a criminal 
charge, and, in effect, substituted the public and the child in 
the place of the mother and the alleged father as the real 
parties in interest. In accordance with this great change it is 
the tendency of the American law to bring the illegitimate child 
closer and closer under the protection of the government. 

Under our present statute (section 3), a complaint against an 
alleged father may be dismissed and the matter settled between 
the parties if the court certifies that adequate provision has been 
made for the maintenance of the child. As the question of the 
support of the child is a matter touching the public interest 
vitally, the court, in responding to a request for such certifica- 
tion, should have the benefit of such information or advice as 
public relief authorities can give. I therefore recommend the 
addition of a provision in section 3 providing that the Depart- 
ment of Public Welfare shall stand ready to aid the court in 
reaching its conclusions as to such certifications. 



LAWS AFFECTING THE DEPARTMENT, PASSED BY THE 
LEGISLATURE OF 1920. 

Several changes in the law are to be noted since the last 
report: chapter 597 of the Acts of 1920 provides for a new

Section 1. Chapter five hundred and ninety-seven of the acts of nine- 
teen hundred and eleven, as amended in section one by section one of

12 DEP.\RTMEXT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

dred and ninety of the General Acts of nineteen hundred and seventeen, is 
hereby further amended bj^ striking out said section one and substituting 
the following : — Section 1 . Every city or town which places its patients 
suffering from tuberculosis in a county, municipal or incorporated tuber- 
culosis hospital, or in a building or ward set apart for patients suffering from 
tuberculosis by a county, municipal or incorporated hospital shaU be en- 
titled to receive from the commonwealth a subsidy of five dollars a week 
for each patient who has a legal settlement therein, provided that such 
patient is unable to pay for his support, and that his kindred bound by 
law to maintain him are unable to pay for the same ; but a city or town shall 
not become entitled to this subsidy unless, upon examination authorized 
by the department of public health, the sputum of the patient be found to 
contain bacilli of tuberculosis, nor unless the hospital building or ward be 
approved by said department; and the department shall not give such 
approval unless it has, by authority of law or by permission of the hospital, 
full authority to inspect the same at all times. The department may at 
an}^ time withdraw its approval. In the case of hospitals having a bed 
capacity which, in the opinion of the said department, is in excess of the 
number of beds needed for the locaUties which these institutions serve for 
patients exliibiting tubercle bacilli in their sputum, the subsidy above pro- 
vided for shall be allowed for such patients not exhibiting tubercle bacilli 
in their sputum as, in the joint opinion of the superintendent of the insti-

the treasury of the conunonwealth in the same manner in which other 
claims against the commonwealth are paid.

days prior to the date when notice of the claim is received by the depart- 
ment of public health shall be approved. [Approved April 2, 1920.

who is afflicted with syphilis, gonorrhoea or pulmonary tuberculosis shall 
forthwith be placed under medical treatment, and if, in the opinion of the 
attending physician it is necessary, he shall be isolated until danger of 
contagion has passed or the physician determines that his isolation is un- 
necessary. If, at the expiration of his sentence, he is afflicted with syphilis, 
gonorrhoea or pulmonary tuberculosis in their contagious or infectious 
symptoms, or if, in the opinion of the attending physician of the institution 
or of such physician as the authorities thereof may consult, his discharge 
would be dangerous to public health, he shall be placed under medical 
treatment and cared for as above provided in the institution where he has 
been confined until, in the opinion of the attending physician, the said 
symptoms have disappeared and his discharge will not endanger the public 
health. The expense of his support, not exceeding three dollars and fifty 
cents a week, shall be paid by the place in which he has a settlement, after 
notice of the expiration of his sentence and of his condition to the overseers 
of the poor thereof, or, if he is a state pauper, to the department of public 
welfare. [Approved April I4, 1920.

The State institutions in the Department of Public Welfare 
are: the State Infirmary at Tewksbury; the Lyman School for 
Boys at Westborough; the Industrial School for Boys at Shir- 



14 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

ley; the State Industrial School for Girls at Lancaster; and 
the Massachusetts Hospital School at Canton. 

Under the general supervisory direction of the Department, 
the administration of the several State charitable institutions is 
arranged as follows : — 

The State Infirmary is controlled by the following Board of 
Trustees: Galen L. Stone, Brookline, Chairman; Nellie E. 
Talbot, Brookline, Secretary; Mrs. Mary E. Cogan, Stoneham; 
Francis W. Anthony, M.D., Haverhill; Dennis D. Sullivan, 
Middleborough; Walter F. Dearborn, Cambridge; G. Forrest 
Martin, M.D., Lowell. 

The three State training or industrial schools fall under the 
control of Trustees of Massachusetts Training Schools. The 
Board is as follows: James W. McDonald, Marlborough, Chair- 
man; Mary Josephine Bleakie, Brookline; Matthew Luce, 
Cohasset; David R. Collier, Gardner; Amy Ethel Taylor, 
Lexington; Charles M. Davenport, Boston; James D. Hender- 
son, Newton; Ralph A. Stewart, Brookline; Eugene T. Con- 
nolly, Beverly; Robert J. Watson, Executive Secretary, 41 Mt. 
Vernon Street, Boston. 

The Massachusetts Hospital School is administered by the 
following Board of Trustees: Edward H. Bradford, M.D., 
Boston, Chairman; Leonard W. Ross, Mattapan, Secretary; 
Walter C. Baylies, Taunton; William F. Fitzgerald, Brookline; 
Alfred S. Pinkerton, W'^orcester. 

Numbers. 

The total number of cases under care in these State charitable 
institutions during the year was 6,959, a number less by 1,617 
than the corresponding total of 1919. Of the total number, 
4,561 were males and 2,398 were females. Four thousand five 
hundred fourteen were under care for hospital treatment; 2,445 
were juvenile delinquents. Of the hospital cases, 386 were 
suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis, and 698 were insane. 
Added to the above were 353 indigent persons, having no legal 
settlement, cared for at the State Farm. For movement of 
population, see Table III.

Capacity. 

The depletion of institution population through the abnormal 
demands for laborers is still a marked feature of institution 
census this year. In 1919 the average daily population of the 
State Infirmary, where partially or totally disabled dependents 
are cared for, fell 160 below normal. In 1920 it dropped 371. 
This institution is the principal one of the charitable institu- 
tions that would naturally profit by more favorable industrial 
conditions outside. The unsteady worker, or the person who is 
partially incapacitated, fails of self-support to a less degree in 
such abnormal times. The Hospital School held a nearly even 
course, while the Industrial School for Girls was much over- 
crowded. Lyman School, with a normal capacity of 450 beds, 
has housed a daily average population of 438 boys throughout 
the year. This is a decrease of 25 over last year. The average 
daily census at the Industrial School for Boys was 221, which 
was 5S below normal. Nor do these figures reveal the full ex- 
tent of the pressure of these schools to house the greatly in- 
creased number of juvenile delinquents. Lyman School at one 
time during the year had 472 boys in residence. The largest 
daily census at the Industrial School for Girls was 356. 

The accompanying table shows the fluctuations of average 
daily attendance above and below normal capacity for each 
institution, together with the largest and smallest daily totals 
set out for comparison.

Cost of Maintenance. 
The combined appropriations for the maintenance of the 
State charitable institutions in 1920 were $1,571,388.90.1 The 
total expenditures on the same account were $1,524,866.31. Of 
the sum expended, $496,124.40 was for salaries, wages and 
labor; all other expenses, $1,028,741.91. For the coming year 
the respective Boards of Trustees submit estimates for main- 
tenance appropriations, as shown in Table I. Estimates for 
special purposes will be considered later in this report under 
each of the institutions separately. 

Comparative View of Movement of Population and of 

Expenditures. 
The movement of population in the B.ve institutions is shown 
in brief but comparative form in Table II. Inmates are classi- 
fied by sex, while the daily average attendance appears in a 
column adjoining the average number of officers and employees. 
The average number of persons employed, shown in this table, 
is obtained from an exact analysis of the pay rolls, reducing all 
employment to a basis of days. Table III affords comparative 
view of expenditures at all the institutions, classified as "cur- 
Tent" and "extraordinary." Tables II and III are drawn in 
accordance with the statistical form adopted by the National 
Conference of Social Work, May 15, 1906.

Normal capacity of plant, 2,351. Value per unit of capacity, 
$878.76. 

Provides almshouse and hospital care for indigent persons 
not chargeable for support to any city or town. 

During the year 4,140 persons have been under care, — 2,466 
males and 1,674 females, — 1,157 less than in 1919, and 1,458 
less than in 1918. The largest daily census was 2,154, the 
smallest, 1,839, the daily average being 1,979. For the pre- 
ceding year the corresponding figures were 2,514 and 1,982, 
with the daily average of 2,191. This year marks the lowest 
number of persons cared for since 1905. 

Three thousand five hundred forty-five cases, of which 2,058 
were males and 1,487 females, were treated in the general hos- 
pital wards. In this number were 386 cases of pulmonary 
tuberculosis, 15 of diphtheria, 7 of measles, 1 of erysipelas, 31 
of scarlet fever and 5 of influenza. Of the 422 deaths, 381 in 
general hospital department and 41 in the department for the 
insane, 102 were from tuberculosis. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 23 

Of the 386 cases of pulmonary tuberculosis in the consump- 
tive ward, 303 cases were males, and 83 females. Classification 
on admission was as follows: incipient cases, 2; moderately 
advanced, 24; first stage, 10; quiescent, 2; arrested, 2; far 
advanced, 162. The conditions of patients on discharge were 
as follows: 8 apparently cured; 11 quiescent; 57 relieved; 102 
died; 43 not relieved. 

One hundred eighty-five surgical operations were performed. 

Of the 87 births at this institution during the year, 31 were 
males and 56 were females. Of this number there were 84 
living births, namely, 30 males and 54 females. Among the 
mothers of these children 64 were born in the United States, 3 
in Ireland, 7 in British Provinces and 13 in other countries. 
For an account of this Board's work with mother and baby 
cases at this institution, see page 85. 

Six hundred seventy-two children were attending the school 
during the year in 30 different classes. 

In the insane department of this institution there was a daily 
average during the year of 698 persons, 195 males and 503 fe- 
males. There were 43 deaths. 

With an appropriation of $884,813, a total of $847,539.81 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $253,144.95 was for salaries, wages and 
labor; all other expenses, $594,394.86. Weekly per capita cost 
of maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds 
from maintenance, $8,162. Total receipts from all sources 
other than the State treasury, $53,340.75. Net cost of main- 
tenance to the Commonwealth, $794,199.06. Ratio of daily 
average number of persons employed to daily average number 
of inmates, 1 to 5.6. For detailed analysis of receipts and ex- 
penditures, see pages 36 to 54. The trustees estimate that 
$1,088,245 will be necessary for maintenance in 1921. (See 
table, page 18.) 

For the coming year the trustees submit the following esti- 
mate, with a request for special appropriations covering the 
same: — 

1. A hospital for women . $221,092 

2. A children's building 147,870 

3. A domestic building 185,194 

$554,156 



24 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

Almshouse Department at the State Farm, Bridgewater. 
HoLLis M. Blackstone, Superintendent. 

Provides almshouse care for indigent persons not chargeable 
to any city or town. 

Lender chapter 199, General Acts of 1919, this institution was 
transferred to the Bureau of Prisons, now the Department of 
Correction, August 27, 1919. The data following are for the 
fiscal year ending November 30, 1920 : — 

During the year 353 cases have been cared for. Largest 
daily census, 268; daily average, 247. 

Number of admissions during the year, 100. The total 
number of cases leaving the institution during the year, whether 
by death or discharge, was 127. The deaths numbered 37. 

The State Training Schools. 

The Lyman School for Boys at Westborough, the Industrial 
School for Boys at Shirley, and the Industrial School for Girls 
at Lancaster are the three industrial schools provided by the 
State for juvenile delinquents. The three schools with their two 
parole departments constitute the Division of Juvenile Training 
of the Department of Public Welfare with offices at 41 Mt. 
Vernon Street, Boston. 

The Girls Parole Department has a staff of eleven visitors and 
four clerks, and last year expended $28,929.46 on this work. 
At the end of the year there were 429 girls on parole. 

The Boys Parole Department has a staff of twelve visitors 
and four clerks, and last year expended $67,149.27. At the end 
of the year there were 2,514 boys on parole from the two 
schools. 

Boys under fifteen years of age may be committed to the 
Lyman School, and under eighteen years of age to the school 
at Shirley. Most of the boys who are guilty of truancy only 
are sent to the county training schools. Girls under seventeen 
go to the institution at Lancaster. All persons committed re- 
main under the control of the trustees during minority. For 
greater efficiency in administration, the Lyman School cares 
for boys under fifteen, while those over that age go to Shirley. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 25 

The total number of persons under care in these three institu- 
tions during the year was 2,445. Of these, 1,260 were boys 
under fifteen, all at Lyman School, 631 were boys fifteen and 
over, at Shirley, and 554 were girls under seventeen, cared for 
at Lancaster. 

In the three schools there were, at the beginning of the year, 
1,037 inmates, namely, 680 boys and 357 girls. One thousand 
four hundred and eight were received during the year, and 
1,438 went out either by discharge or upon parole, viz., 1,205 
boys and 233 girls, leaving 1,007 on November 30, 1920. 

The combined appropriations for the maintenance of the 
three schools totaled $543,286.09. On this account, $535,443.45 
was expended. Subtracting all receipts from sources other than 
the State treasury, the net cost of maintenance to the Com- 
monwealth was $533,636.95. Details of administration and cost 
are considered under each school separately, as follows : — 

Lyman School for Boys, Westhorough. 
Chakles a. Keelee, Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $591,335.62. 
Normal capacity, 450. Value per unit of capacity, $1,314.07. 

Provides custodial care and industrial training for delinquent 
boys under fifteen years of age. Cottage plan. 

During the year 1,260 cases have been under care, represent- 
ing 627 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 339 
less than in 1919, and 235 less than in 1918. The number in 
the school at the beginning of the year was 430; admissions 
numbered 830, discharges, 806; remainder at the close of the 
year, 454. The daily average number of inmates was 438.79, — 
25 less than in 1919. At one time during the year there were 
472 boys in residence. 

The list of causes of admission in the 830 cases received 
during the year was as follows: assault, 2; breaking and 
entering, 70; delinquent child, 105; gaming on the Lord's Day, 
1; larceny, 102; returned or transferred from other institutions, 
not penal, 40; returned from funerals, 8; returned from visits 
to sick relatives, 1 ; returned from place of parole or board, 333 ; 
running away, 10; malicious mischief, 4; transferred from the 



26 DEPAET:\IEXT of public welfare. [P. D. 17. 

Department of Public Welfare, 9; setting fires, 1; returned 
from wedding in family, 1; stubbornness, 32; vagrancy, 2; 
false alarm of fire, 1; runaways captured, 108. 

Three hundi'ed forty-seven of the foregoing cases were com- 
mitted by the courts. Of this number, 225 had been arrested 
before, and 90 had been inmates of other institutions. Thirty- 
eight, or 10.9 per cent, were of American parentage; 187, or 
53.8 per cent, were foreign born; and 49 were unknown. 
Twenty-seven of the boys were foreign born, while 309 were 
born in the United States. 

The great decrease in commitments during the year brought 
a much-needed relief from overcrowding. At the end of 1920 
the population was down almost to the normal capacity of the 
school. This decline reduces the great risk which it has been 
impossible to avoid with such crowded conditions in the past, 
and enables those in charge to give the boys better training and 
discipline. As a consequence, it is reasonable to expect an in- 
crease in the percentage of boys who make good on parole. 

Of the new commitments this year, 34 boys were eleven years 
of age or under. These young boys are taken care of in two 
cottages, one 7 and the other 3 miles from the main school. 
They do not mingle with the older boys. 

This year the average period of stay of boys paroled for first 
time at Lyman School was increased from 10.75 months, which 
it had been in former years, to 11.74 months. 

Last year, of 1,066 cases received into the school, 461 were 
returned from place or parole. This year, out of 830 cases re- 
ceived, 333 were returned from place or parole. The 43 per 
cent of 1919 became 40 per cent in 1920. 

Of the 806 cases discharged or released diu-ing the year, 356 
were released on parole to parents and relatives; on parole to 
others than relatives, 148; on parole to make their own way, 
1; boarded out, 122; runaways, 116; sent to hospitals, 35; 
turned over to police, 1; transferred to other institutions, 15; 
released to funerals, 8; released to visit sick relatives, 1; re- 
leased to wedding in family, 1; released to court, 2. 

With an appropriation of $225,400, a total of $224,700.43 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $79,042.99 was for salaries, wages and labor;

all other expenses, $145,657.44. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $9,776. Total receipts from all sources other than 
the State treasury, $546.43. Net cost of maintenance to the 
Commonwealth, $224,154. Ratio of daily average number of 
persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 1 to 4.4. 
The trustees estimate that $281,689 will be necessary for 
maintenance in 1921. (See table, page 18.) For detailed analy- 
sis of receipts and expenditures, see pages 36 to 54. 

There is great need for a large building at the school to be 
used for laundry, kitchen and storage. 

For the coming year the trustees submit the following esti- 
mate, with request for a special appropriation covering the 
same: — 

1. For the construction, heating and electric wiring of a store- 
house, kitchen and laundry building $120,000 

Industrial School for Boys, Shirley. 
Geobge p. Campbell, Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $476,330.63. 
Normal capacity of plant, 270. Value per unit of capacity, 
$1,701.18. 

Provides custodial care and industrial training for boys over 
fifteen and under twenty-one years of age. Only boys under 
eighteen may be admitted. 

During the year 631 cases have been cared for, representing 
621 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 117 less 
than in the preceding year. The number in the school at the 
beginning of the year was 250. Admissions numbered 381; dis- 
charges, 399; remainder at the close of the year, 232. The 
largest daily census was 251; the smallest, 205; daily average, 
221.16. 

The list of causes of admission in the 381 cases received 
during the year was as follows: assault, 3; assault and battery, 
6; assault and robbery, 1; arson, 1; breaking and entering, 15; 
breaking and entering and larceny, 68; forgery, 2; idle and 
disorderly, 3; larceny, 104; stubborn child, 41; unlawful use 
of automobile, 9; trespass, 1; vagrancy, 4; miscellaneous, 12;

returned from parole, 86; returned from leave of absence, 8; 
returned from hospital, 2; malicious mischief and destruction 
of property, 5; running away, 10. 

Two hundred eighty-five of the foregoing cases were com- 
mitted by the courts, and 15 were transferred from Lyman 
School. Of the boys thus committed, 235 had been in court 
before, and 82 had been inmates of other institutions. Thirty- 
eight, or 13.3 per cent, were foreign born; 246, or 86.3 per 
cent, were born in the United States. Sixty-eight were of 
American parentage, 157 of foreign parentage, and 15 were of 
unknown parentage. The average length of stay of boys in 
the school was nine and one-half months. The average popula- 
tion of 221.16 was less than the average of the preceding year 
by 49.53. 

Most of these boys are well developed physically, and need 
much work to take care of their surplus energy. The offences 
for w^hich many of them are committed are very serious, and 
require a strenuous effort to keep the boys from developing into 
criminals. The boys do a great part of the work about the 
large farm, and during the past year succeeded in supplying 
the greater part of all the food used in the school. 

Of the 399 boys discharged or released during the year, 253 
were paroled; returned paroles placed out, 75; granted leave 
of absence, 8; transferred to Lyman School for Boys, 9; trans- 
ferred to Massachusetts Reformatory, 14; transferred to other 
institutions, not penal, 6; returned to court, over or under age, 
6; absent without leave, 26; discharged by court, 2. 

Out of an appropriation of $162,083.47, a total of $155,070.16 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of this 
amount expended, $52,035.73 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $103,034.43. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $13,343. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $883.81. Net cost of maintenance to 
the Commonwealth, $154,186.35. Ratio of daily average num- 
ber of persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 
1 to 3.9. The trustees estimate that $174,990 will be necessary 
for maintenance in 1921. (See table, page 18.) For detailed 
analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pages 36 to 54.

There is pressing need for a new infirmary building to take 
the place of the old Shaker building which must answer all 
such purposes at present; also a general kitchen and laundry 
building is needed to replace building destroyed by fire. 

For the coming year the trustees submit the following esti- 
mate, with request for a special appropriation covering the 
same: — 

1. For the construction, heating, plumbing, lighting and furnish- 

ing of an infirmary building $70,000 

2. For general kitchen and laundry building, and heating con- 

nections to adjacent buildings 80,000 

Industrial School for Girls, Lancaster. 
Cathakine M. Campbell, Superintendent. 

Total valuation of plant, real and personal, $460,700.90. 
Normal capacity of plant, 299. Value per unit of capacity, 
$1,540.80. Founded in 1854 as a private institution. Taken 
over by the State in 1856. 

Provides custodial care and industrial training for delinquent 
girls under seventeen years of age at time of commitment. 

During the year 554 girls have been under care. This total 
is 38 less than in 1919, and 1 less than in 1918. The number 
in the school at the beginning of the year was 357; admissions 
during the year, 197; discharged, including all persons going 
out of the school, 233; remaining November 30, 1919, 321. 

The largest daily census was 356; smallest, 319; daily 
average, 334.52. 

The list of causes of admission for 118 commitments of the 
197 cases received at the school during the year was as fol- 
lows: being a runaway, 6; delinquent, 2; delinquent child, 12; 
fornication, 9; idle and disorderly, 2; idle, vagrant and vicious, 
1; larceny, 16; lewdness, 6; lewd and lascivious, 1; lewd and 
lascivious conduct, 2; lewd and lascivious cohabitation, 1; lewd 
and lascivious person, 3; lewd person in speech and behavior, 
1; lewd person, 1; lewd and lascivious person in speech and

a stubborn, disobedient child, 2; stubborn, disobedient child, 
1; stubborn child, 25; transferred from Department of Public 
Welfare, 1; vagrancy, 1; vagrant, 1.

Recalled to the school, 77, — for a visit to the school, 14; on 
account of illness, 5; from hospital, 5; from temporary place,. 
1; for further training, 10; for larceny, 7; for running away 
from the school, 4; for being immoral while a runaway, 10; 
for immoral conduct, 6; because in danger of immoral conduct,, 
4; for running away from place, 10; from running away from 
hospital, 1. 

Of the 233 girls discharged or released during the year, 25 
were released on parole to parents or relatives; on parole to 
other families for wages, 138; on parole to other families to 
attend school, earning wages, 9; from a visit at the school, 14; 
for a visit, 4; ran away from Industrial School, 5; transferred 
to hospital, 15; transferred to schools for the feeble-minded, 15; 
transferred to Reformatory for Women, 5; to temporary place, 
1; on becoming of age, 1; discharged (over age when com- 
mitted), 1. 

The average length of stay in the school of the girls who were 
paroled for the first time in 1920 was two years, thirteen days. 
The longer period of training as compared with that in the 
boys' schools enables the superintendent to know the inmates 
better; gives an opportunity for more efficient training; and 
increases the pupil's chances of making good on parole. 

Many of the girls are not normal mentally, and for that 
reason are not proper subjects for this school. It is a very 
difficult thing to transfer these girls elsewhere. 

The more backward girls live for the most part in a separate 
cottage a few miles from the main school, and are given train- 
ing best suited to their particular needs. This separation within 
the institution must continue, pending the time when proper 
classification can be effected before commitment. 

With an appropriation of $155,802.62, a total of $155,672.86 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $54,384.39 was for salaries, wages and labor;, 
all other expenses, $101,288.47. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $8,879. Total receipts from all sources other than 
the State treasury, $376.26. Net cost of maintenance to the 
Commonwealth, $155,296.60. Ratio of daily average number 
of persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 1 to

maintenance in 1921. (See table, page 18.) For detailed 
analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pages 36 to 54. 

Massachusetts Hospital School, Canton. 
John E. Fish, M.D., Superintendent. 

Opened December 1, 1907. Total valuation of plant, real 
and personal, $419,684.54. Normal capacity of plant, 302. 
Value per unit of capacity, $1,389.68. 

Provides care and schooling for crippled and deformed chil- 
dren. Crippled and deformed children of the Commonwealth 
between ages of five and fifteen, and mentally competent to at- 
tend the public schools, are eligible for admission. 

There were 374 cases under care during the year. This total 
is 34 more than in 1919, and 27 more than in 1918. 

On December 1, 1919, there were 280 children, namely, 154 
boys and 126 girls, in the school. Ninety-four were admitted 
and 80 discharged during the year. The maximum number at 
any one time was 294, the minimum, 211, and the daily aver- 
age, 274.44, — an increase of 17.89 over the preceding year. 
Two hundred ninety-four remained in residence at the close of 
the year. 

Out of an appropriation of $143,289.81, a total of $141,883.05 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $57,516.34 was for salaries, wages and labor; 
all other expenses, $84,366.71. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from

the Commonwealth, $98,255.82. Ratio of daily average number 
of persons employed to daily average number of inmates, 1 to 
3.7. The trustees estimate the sum of $181,842 for maintenance 
in 1921. (See table, page 18.) For detailed analysis of receipts 
and expenditures, see pages 36 to 54.

FIXAXCL\L SUPERVISION OF THE STATE CHARITABLE 

INSTITUTIONS. 

The Department in its supervision of the financial adminis- 
tration of the several State charitable institutions — the plant 
and its upkeep and maintenance — inspects each institution 
through paid officers monthly. 

Monthly analysis is made of articles of food, coal, hay and 
grain purchased, and tabulated results sent to each institution. 
In addition, sundry tabulations covering the year's operations 
have been prepared. The Department has co-operated with 
the several institutions in bringing about the joint consideration 
of purchasing supplies, resulting in regular conferences upon 
matters of common interest, especially functions of purchasing. 

The following tables are designed to show in detail the 
financial condition of each institution. A convenient summary 
of the State's property represented by each institution is fol- 
lowed by a comparison of all appropriations and the expendi- 
tures made therefrom. 

I. Inventory. 

Inventory of State property represented by the institutions is 
shown in Table IV. This tabulation is in four parts. Parts I 
and II exhibit realty; Part III shows personalty; Part IV 
summarizes the whole. 

From Parts I and II it appears that on November 30, 1920, 
the five State charitable institutions returned $3,189,835.19 in 
real estate, $173,040.61 of this amount being land, and $3,- 
016,794.58 representing buildings. Chattels real and other 
items of betterment are not separately considered; hence, water, 
telephone, fire and sewerage systems are to be found in the 
xaiscellaneous columns under the heading of "buildings." 

Part III shows the uniform analysis of personal property 
adopted by the State auditor, to the amount of $824,192.81. 
The total valuation, real and personal, as shown in Part IV is 
$4,014,028.

38 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

IIL Expenditures. 

Table VI, divided into four parts, shows all expenditures of 
whatever nature on account of the several institutions. Part I 
deals with maintenance only. Part II exhibits outlays for 
special purposes, divided into four headings, namely, "land," 
"buildings," "furnishing and equipping" and "miscellaneous." 
In Part III are shown all moneys expended for purposes so far 
apart from the institution proper as to fall outside the uniform 
classifications. Because of various duties the Board of Trustees 
has appropriations apart from the grants for its institutions. 
Part IV summarizes the whole. 

The table shows that $1,524,866.31 was spent for mainte- 
nance, exclusive of expenditures for special purposes mentioned 
in Part II, which amounted to $31,171.26. By adding to these 
amounts $104,527 for sundry expenditures, as shown in Part 

III, we find a grand total of $1,660,564.57 expended on account 
of the five institutions. 

In addition to the total expenditures as above indicated, two 
institutions — Lyman School and the Industrial School for 
Girls — have private trust funds which are administered for the 
benefit of inmates, but independently of the State's investment. 
The custody of each is vested in the State Treasurer, whose 
duty it is to invest the same and to pay therefrom at the re- 
quest of the trustees. Three of these trusts — the Lyman fund, 
the Lyman trust fund and the Lamb fund — • apply to Lyman 
School, while the Fay, the Mary Lamb and the Rogers book 
fund pertain to the Industrial School for Girls. From these 
sources a total of $1,259.01 was expended during the year, of 
which $48.20 was from the Rogers book fund, $100 from the 
Fay fund, and $1,110.81 from the Lyman trust fund. 

IV. Analysis of Maintenance and Net Per Capita Cost. 
The uniform analysis of maintenance expenditures comprises 

twelve classes or divisions, namely, "salaries and wages;" "re- 
ligious instruction;" "travel, transportation and office ex- 
penses;" "food;" "clothing and materials;" "furnishings and 
household supplies;" "medical and general care;" "heat, light

and power; '^ "farm;" "garage, stable and grounds;'* "re- 
pairs, ordinary;" and "repairs and renewals." Table VII is 
correspondingly divided into thirteen parts, the last of which 
is a summary of the whole, and shows for each of the five insti- 
tutions the total cost of maintenance for each of the main head- 
ings in the analysis. It further shows all receipts from sales or 
refunds; the difference, which is the net cost to the institu- 
tion; and the average net weekly per capita cost to the insti- 
tution, with a column showing the corresponding per capita for 
the three-year period just ended.

V. COMPAKISON OF APPROPRIATIONS AND EXPENDITURES 

THEREFROM. 

Table VIII affords comparisons of appropriations for main- 
tenance with the respective amounts expended therefrom. Ap- 
propriations are classified as "receipts available for mainte- 
nance'^ and "appropriations in addition to such receipts." All 
receipts at the Hospital School, though turned, like the receipts 
of all the other institutions, into the State treasury, are by law 
applicable to maintenance in the succeeding year. Receipts at 
the remaining institutions are not so applied. By this com- 
parison the total maintenance expenditures were $46,522.59 less 
than the amounts appropriated. This balance reverts into the 
treasury. 

Receipts of 1919 available for maintenance in 1920, $51,- 
538.87. This sum was received on account of board of patients 
at the Massachusetts Hospital School.

VI. Appropriations for Special Purposes. 
The total of appropriations for special purposes during 1920 
as shown by Table IX was $108,650. In addition to this 
amount the several institutions began the year with a total of 
$17,375.23 unexpended balance on previous special appropria- 
tions. The grand total available for 1920 was, therefore, S126,- 
025.23. The amount expended from this total was $31,171.26, 
leaving an unexpended balance of $94,853.97, of which $94,« 
834.55 will be available in 1921. The remainder of $19.42 re- 
verts to the State treasurv.

VII. Net Cost to the Commonwealth. 
The net cost to the State of maintaining or conducting each 
institution is the difference between total expenditures and the 
total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury. 
These total expenditures must cover all moneys spent for 
maintenance and special purposes, together with all outlays for 
sundry purposes, apart from the institution, and interest on 
outstanding bonds. These items are compared in Table X. 
For convenience, the daily average number of inmates and the 
net weekly per capita cost to the State are added. This tabu- 
lation shows a daily average number of inmates of 3,248.14, 
and expenditures for all purposes of $1,690,846.39. Total re- 
ceipts from institutions, i.e., sources other than the State treas- 
ury, amounted to $98,774.48. The net cost to the State for all 
five institutions amounted to $1,592,071.91, making the net 
weekly per capita cost to the State $9,374.

VIIL Analysis of Pay Roll. 
Table XI, divided into six parts, shows a comparative 
analysis of the pay roll for each of the five institutions. The 
iirst five parts divide service into five classes, namely, "general 
administration," "medical service," "ward service," "farm, 
stable and grounds" and "repairs." Part VI summarizes the 
whole. The table shows the daily average number employed 
in 1919 and 1920, with the same average for the three-year 
period ending November 30, 1919. The same treatment is given 
the average monthly compensation and the weekly per capita 
cost. The total average number employed was 619.358, while 
for the three-year period preceding 1920 it was 623.525. The 
total average monthly compensation paid was $335.41, as 
against $260.34 in the preceding three-year period. Miscellane- 
ous and incidental employment not entered upon the pay rolls 
of the institutions does not appear in this tabulation. The 
number of inmates to one employee is slightly less than last 
year in most of the institutions.

62 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFAEE. [P. D. 17, 



THE COUNTY TRAINING SCHOOLS. 

Lender the provisions of General Laws, chapter 77, section 2, 
the five county training schools for truants and habitual school 
offenders are subject to the visitation of this Department, which 
is required to report thereon in its annual report. The schools 
are as follows : — 

Essex County Training School, Lawrence. 
Hampden County Training School, Springfield. 
Middlesex Countj^ Training School, North Chelmsford. 
Norfolk, Bristol and Plymouth Union Training School, Walpole. 
Worcester County Training School, Oakdale (West Boylston) . 

The accompanying table shows the number and movement 
of population in these institutions for the fiscal year ending 
December 31, 1920, and also the average weekly per capita cost 
of maintenance, subtracting all receipts from private sources. 

As will be seen from the table there were 618 children in the 
five schools during 1920. The year opened with 408. In the 
succeeding twelve months 210 were admitted and 237 were dis- 
charged, leaving 381 in residence at the close of the year. This 
figure is 28 less than the corresponding number for 1919, — a 
decrease made chiefly by the number of releases at two schools 
rather than to more commitments. 

The average age of the children at the time of their ad- 
mittance was twelve years, one month and twenty-six days. 
Every child must be discharged, by requirement of the statute, 
upon reaching the age of sixteen.

64 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 



SUPERVISION OF THE SETTLED POOR RELIEVED OR SUP- 
PORTED BY CITIES AND TOWNS. 

The City and Town Poor. 

The law provides that the Department of Public Welfare 
may visit and inspect all places where city or town poor are 
supported in families, and requires the Department to visit, 
at least once a year, not only all children who are maintained 
by the Commonwealth, but all minor children who are sup- 
ported at the expense of any city or town. Children illegally 
retained in city or town almshouses, — i.e., children over two 
years of age, or, if the mothers are inmates, over three years 
of age, and not defective in body or mind, who have been 
retained in an almshouse for more than two months — must 
be removed therefrom and placed at board at the expense of the 
city or town concerned. (General Laws, chapter 117, sections 
3, 36, 37 and 38; chapter 121, section 16.) 

The following data show numbers and location of the various 
classes of persons coming within the scope of this statute : — 

The Settled Adult Poor provided for in Families. 
Of the 261 adult poor persons reported by local authority as 
fully supported in families on January 1, 1920, 22 had died and 
7 had been removed before visits could be made. The remain- 
ing 232 — 103 men and 129 women — were all visited and re- 
ported on by the Department's agents. They were supported 
by 126 cities and towns as follows: Abington, 4; Acton, 1; Ash- 
land, 1; Athol, 2; Attleboro, 2; Becket, 1; Belmont, 1; Berlin, 
1; Blandford, 1; Bolton, 1; Bourne, 1; Braintree, 3; Brewster,

town, 6; Webster, 1; Westminster, 1; West Springfield, 3; 
West Stockbridge, 1; W^est Tisbury, 2; W^hitman, 7; Williams- 
town, 3; Winchester, 1. Their ages were as follows: 5 between 
thirty and forty; 16 between forty and fifty; 22 between fifty 
and sixty; 52 between sixty and seventy; 83 between seventy 
and eighty; 48 between eighty and ninety; 6 ninety or over. 
For their support they were paid in 4 cases less than $2 per 
week; in 14 cases from $2 to $3 per week; in 46 cases from 
$3 to $4 per week; and in 168 cases — mostly of old and 
feeble persons — the rate varied from |4 to S20.67, according 
to the amount of care required. Of the whole number 50 per 
cent were reported to be in fairly good or good physical con- 
dition, and 86 per cent in good mental condition. In all but 
5 cases, or 2 per cent, they were apparently receiving good 
care. There were 92 able to do light work, either in the house 
or about the premises. There were 11 supported in their own 
homes. In 169 cases, according to the reports, the overseers 
of the poor complied with the law requiring them to visit 
these persons at least once in every six months; in 27 cases 
they made one visit a year; and in the remaining 34 cases no 
evidence of visits was found. 

Dependent Minor Children w^ith Settlement provided 

FOR IN Almshouses. 

Visits were made in the cases of 93 children — 40 boys and 

53 girls — reported to be cared for by the following cities and 

towns in their almshouses: Barnstable, 1; Boston, 49; Cam-

Lawrence, 1; Lowell, 4; Milford, 1; North Attleborough, 1 
Northbridge, 1; Pembroke, 1; Salem, 2; Springfield, 14 
Worcester, 4. In addition to this number, 98 had been removed 
from the almshouse before the time of visitation. Of the 
number visited, 62 were so defective in mind or body as to 
render their retention in the almshouse desirable, 3 attended 
school, and 2 assisted in the almshouse. Two were visited 
twice, 6 were removed after visit, and 1 died. 

Dependent Minor Children with Settlement provided 
FOR Outside of Almshouses. 

As shown by the Department's visitation of the 1,221 children 
reported by the local authorities as fully supported outside the 
almshouses on January 1, 1920, and on July 1, 1920, 5 had 
died and 196 had been removed before visits could be made. 
The remaining 1,020 — 508 boys and 512 girls — were sup- 
ported by 69 cities and towns, as follows: Abington, 3; Ames- 
bury, 3; Attleboro, 5; Barnstable, 2; Berlin, 5; Billerica, 1; 
Boston, 622; Braintree, 4; Brockton, 20; Brookline, 8; Cam-

Wellfleet, 2; West Boylston, 4; Westfield, 6; West Springfield, 
2; Weymouth, 2; Winchester, 4; Worcester, 12. 

Of the whole number, 60 were cared for and treated in public 
and private hospitals and asylums. There w^ere 687 who at- 
tended school, and 213 who did more or less work. Of the 
whole number, 935 were in good or fairly good physical condi- 
tion, and 881 were in good or fairly good mental condition. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 67 

The price of board varied froro SI to S6 per week. These 
children were found to be well cared for with a few exceptions, 
which have been brought to the attention of the local overseers. 

The Penalty incureed by Certain Cities and Towns for 
Failure to make their Pauper Returns during the 
Month of April, 1920. 
Sections 32 to 35 of chapter 117 of the General Laws read 

as follows : — 

Section 32. Overseers shall keep full and accurate records, in a form 
prescribed by the department of public weKare, of paupers fully sup- 
ported, persons relieved and partially supported, and travelers and va- 
grants lodged at the expense of their towns, and of the amount paid for 
such support and relief. 

Section 33. They shall annually, in April, for the year ending on the 
last day of March, return to the department of pubHc welfare the num- 
ber of such persons supported and relieved, the cost thereof, and a record 
of those fully supported. 

Section 34. In the year nineteen hundred and twenty-five and in 
every tenth j^ear thereafter the return of the overseers shall contain true 
and correct answers to such additional inquiries as the department may 
deem it advisable to make. 

Section 35. If the overseers refuse or neglect to comply with the 
requirements of the three preceding sections, their town shaU forfeit one 
dollar for each day's neglect; and the amount of such forfeiture on being 
certified by the department to the state treasurer shaU be deducted from 
any amount to which said town may be entitled in reimbursement for 
relief of state paupers as provided in sections twelve and eighteen of chap- 
ter one hundred and twenty-two; and if no such reimbursement shall be 
due to said town, the forfeiture shall be deducted from any money which 
may be due to it from the commonwealth. 

Under these laws the Department reported to the Treasurer 
of the Commonwealth the names of the cities and towns that 
failed to make their pauper returns during the month of April, 
1920, together with the amount of penalty incurred in each 
instance, as follows: Abington, $10; Adams, $4; Avon, $5; 
Ayer, $19; Bedford, $258; Belmont, $7; Billerica, $2; Bland- 
ford, $9; Boxford, $3; Bridgewater, $5; Buckland, $6; Bur-

DIVISION OP AID AND RELIEF. 

SUBDIVISION OF SETTLEMENTS. 

The duties of this subdivision include the investigation of 
the legal settlement status of all persons officially called to the 
attention of the Division by overseers of the poor and boards 
of health, as well as of patients admitted to the State Infirmary, 
State Farm (pauper department). State sanatoria and the 
Massachusetts Hospital School; supervision of public relief in 
the homes and in public and private hospitals, rendered by 
cities and towns to persons without legal settlement; the dis- 
charge of male inmates of the State Infirmary and State Farm 
(pauper department); visitation of city and town paupers 
supported in families; and the audit of all claims for reim- 
bursement submitted by cities and towns. 

The following table is a summary of the work done during 
the year in the examination and in the investigation of settle- 
ments of inmates of the State institutions: — •

Supervision of Wayfarers' Lodges and Public Lodging 

Houses. 

The Department, under the Acts of 1914, chapter 606, makes 
an annual inspection of all wayfarers' lodges and public lodging 
houses when the charge is 25 cents per night or less and when 
ten or more beds are provided. 

As was true during last year in the matter of decrease in 
numbers, so in this year just closed conditions have been found 
the same. Although the labor market has been affected by the 
business depression, and it would be natural to expect an influx 
of lodgers to the cheap houses, yet up to the close of the year 
this has not been the case. 

Prices which were raised last year and the year before have 
not as yet dropped back to the pre-war rate. The customary 
minimum charge to-day in the commercial and charitable lodg- 
ing houses is 20 cents, as against 10 cents in the pre-war 
period. It is also to be noted that many houses have raised 
the rate, making 35 cents the minimum, and, in consequence, 
all supervision and inspection under the law as given to this 
Department has ceased. If it seems best that the supervision 



70 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFAEE. [P. D. 17. 

should continue, it will be necessary to change the wording of 
the statute and make the price as determining the status of the 
cheap lodging houses 35 cents. 

At the last inspection it was reported that one of the lodging 
houses maintained in Fall River as a charity was going out of 
business, and the other had raised its minimum rate to 35 cents. 
One commercial house in that city is still doing business. In 
Lawrence and Lowell both commercial houses have gone out of 
business. In New Bedford there are still two houses main- 
tained as charities, one of which, however, seldom houses an 
inmate. In Springfield there are still two charitable houses and 
•a well kept and managed municipal plant. Boston still main- 
tains its Wayfarers' Lodge and the Chardon Street Home; here 
-are also six commercial houses and &ve maintained as charities. 

The inspectors of the Department have met with courtesy 
and kind co-operation from the managers of all these institu- 
tions, and as in former years, it can be said with all fairness 
that the patrons receive a square deal. 

Temporary Aid. 
The temporary aid law until March 28, 1912, limited reim- 
bursement by the Commonwealth to an amount not greater 
than $2 per week for each family during the months of May 
to September, inclusive, or $3 per week during the other 
months, irrespective of the size or needs of the families. The 
amendment of 1912 authorized the State Board of Charity to 
order adequate aid for families having no legal settlement. 
Since 1912, therefore, it has been the State policy to recom- 
mend adequate aid, and the follow^ing tabulation of reimburse- 
ments to cities and towns shows the gradual development of 
the policy. It should be understood that the amounts annually 
appropriated by the Legislature are necessarily for current and 
previous years, while this tabulation shows the actual amounts 
reimbursed for aid rendered during the year designated. 
(Chapter 81, section 21, Revised Laws, as amended by chapter 
331, Acts of 1912, incorporated in General Laws, chapter 117, 
section 18.)

The expense for the year 1920 is not included in the above 
tabulation because the law provides (chapter 122, section 19, 
General Laws) "All accounts against the commonwealth for 
allowance to counties, cities and towns on account of state 
paupers shall be rendered to the department [of public welfare] 
on or before the third Wednesday of January annually, and 
shall be so made as to include all claims for such charges up 
to the first day of said January, and, if approved by the de- 
partment and certified by the state auditor, shall be paid by 
the commonwealth. . . /' 

During the year, 3,223 notices were received from 190 cities 
and towns concerning 13,313 persons. Two thousand ninety-six 
of the notices were under the provisions of the amendment 
(chapter 331, Acts of 1912), and the causes of aid were as 
follows: illness of the wage earner, 530; desertion, 391; widow- 
hood, 327; unemployment, 262; old age, 103; insufficient 
income, 76; husbands in house of correction, 55; orphans, 22; 
insanity, 19; blindness, 15; nonsupport, 8; unknown, 288. 



Shipwrecked Seamen. 
" Overseers of the poor of towns may provide transportation 
to destitute shipwrecked seamen from one place to another 
within the commonwealth, and such other assistance while 
they are awaiting transportation, not exceeding ten dollars 
for each person, as the said overseers deem necessary. A 
detailed statement of expenses so incurred shall be rendered 



72 DEPAETMEXT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 1 



/. 



to the department of public welfare, and, after approval by 
it, such expenses shall be paid by the commonwealth from the 
appropriation for the temporary support of state paupers, 
without reference to the legal settlement of such seamen." 
(Chapter 102, section 5, General Laws.) 

During the year transportation from Nantucket to Boston 
was provided for seven shipwrecked seamen at an expense of 
$5L97. 

Sick State Poor. 

The Commonwealth reimburses cities and towns for aid 
rendered to persons without legal settlement, ill in their homes 
or in city or town or private hospitals. The law limits such 
reimbursement to a rate not exceeding $10.50 per week for the 
support of a person in a city or town hospital for the period 
during which the patient is unable to be removed to the State 
Infirmary, unless the Department of Public Welfare deems it 
expedient as an economy in expenditure, and in the interest of 
the patient's health, when it may authorize reimbursement for 
aid rendered after the patient has become able to be removed 
to the State Infirmary, and in its discretion until the patient 
is able to be discharged. (Chapter 122, sections 17 and 18, 
General Laws.) 

The number of notices received from 106 cities and towns 
was 5,331, concerning 5,331 persons represented as too ill to 
be removed. 

Dangerous Diseases. 

The law provides that the reasonable expenses incurred by 
the board of health of a city or town, in making the provision 
required by law for persons infected with smallpox or other 
disease dangerous to the public health, shall be paid by the 
Commonwealth if the person has no settlement, provided the 
patient or kindred are unable to pay. Reimbursement for 
hospital care and treatment is limited to the rate of 110.50 per 
week, established by the sick State poor law. The number of 
notices received from 88 cities and towns was 2,358, concerning 
2,358 persons. (Chapter 111, section 116, General Laws.) 

Since the enactment of the act to encourage and promote 
the building and use of tuberculosis hospitals in cities and towns 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 73 

(chapter 597 of the Acts of 1911 as amended), the Coramon- 
wealth in compliance with an opinion of the Attorney-General 
has limited reimbursement for cases of tuberculosis coming 
within this provision of law to the difference between the sum 
ordinarily due and the amount of the subsidy, but the amend- 
ment to the act (chapter 238 of the Acts of 1920) eliminates 
subsidy for patients having no legal settlement, which will 
necessitate a considerable increase in our appropriation. 

Wife-settlement. 

The law provides that "If a state pauper has a wife who is 
also a pauper having a legal settlement in this commonwealth, 
he shall be supported by the town where his wife has her 
settlement. "" (Chapter 122, section 12, General Laws.) 

There has been a gradual decrease in the number of notices 
under this law, due to the fact that the changes in the settle- 
ment laws (chapter 669, Acts of 1911, which became fully 
operative August 12, 1916) eliminated the payment of poll 
taxes as a prerequisite for acquiring a settlement. The number 
of notices received from 23 cities and towns was 190, concern- 
ing 810 persons. 

BUEIAL. 

Overseers of the poor are not limited in the amounts that 
may be expended for the burial of paupers, but in unsettled 
cases reimbursement is limited to an amount not exceeding 
$30 for the funeral expenses of each pauper over twelve years, 
and not exceeding $15 for the funeral expenses of each pauper 
under that age; also, the Commonwealth is debarred from 
reimbursing cities and towns for funeral expenses unless the 
overseers of the poor file with each claim an affidavit of the 
undertaker stating the amount received from the city or town, 
and further stating that he has not received and will not accept 
money for such funeral expenses from any other source. (Chap- 
ter 117, section 17, General Laws.) 

The number of burial claims received was 335.

ArDiT. 

The number, amount and allowance of the bills examined on 
account of cases of temporary aid, sick State poor, dangerous 
diseases, wife-settlement, burial and mothers with dependent 
children are shown in the following tabulation. It is to be 
noted that the total shown in this table may vary somewhat 
from the total paid out of the treasury during the fiscal year 
from the appropriation in question. This possible variance 
arises from the fact that bills audited by this Department are 
in some cases not actually paid during the year for which the 
audit is shown. For actual expenditure out of these respective 
appropriations see page 140.

76 DEPAETMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

SUBDIVISION OF MOTHERS' AID. 

. Mothers' Aid is not a pension, — it is relief. As such it is 
granted by the overseers of the poor of a given city or town 
to such fit and needy mothers of dependent children under 
fourteen years of age, living within their respective boundaries, 
as apply to them for aid. Such mothers and their children are 
not deemed to be paupers by reason of receiving such aid. 
There is no per capita amount of aid, nor is there any minimum 
or maximum per family established. The law states that the 
aid shall be sufficient to enable the mother to bring up her 
children properly in their own home. 

In order to be eligible for Mothers' Aid a mother must be 
fit to bring up her children; she must have her dependent 
children under fourteen years living with her and receiving her 
personal care; she must have a suitable home; she must be in 
need of aid from the overseers of the poor; and she must have 
lived in Massachusetts for three years next prior to the date of 
her application for Mothers' Aid. 

The law applies not only to widows but also to mothers 
whose husbands are totally incapacitated by reason of insanity 
or of chronic illness (such as tuberculosis, paralysis, cancer, 
heart disease, etc.); to mothers whose husbands are in jail; 
to mothers whose husbands are divorced or legally separated 
from them; and also, under certain conditions, to mothers 
whose husbands have deserted them. 

In estimating how much aid a given family needs, the over- 
seers must determine what the weekly expenses and the weekly 
income of the family are. The expenses include rent, fuel and 
light, clothing and food. The income includes net earnings of 
the working members of the family, rentals, income from funds, 
relatives, societies, etc. The difference between the weekly 
expenses and the net weekly income of the family indicates the 
amount of aid the family needs at a given time. 

The amount of aid granted may vary with the changing 
needs of the family. It should be gradually reduced as the 
family income gradually increases, and it should be withdrawn 
altogether as soon as the need for public aid ceases to exist. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 77 

Cash aid in weekly payments is the rule throughout the 
Commonwealth, though fuel, milk, groceries and merchandise 
may be granted under this law. In case of illness of the mother 
or of her dependent children under fourteen years of age, they 
are entitled to medical aid and medicines either at home or in 
a hospital. 

The overseers are required under the law to investigate each 
case thoroughly before aiding, to decide upon the proper amount 
and nature of the relief. They may begin at once to aid, 
notifying the State Department of Public Welfare of their 
action on duly prescribed printed forms, requesting reimburse- 
ment of the Commonwealth's share of the expense, i.e., one- 
third of the amount of aid rendered if the applicant has a legal 
settlement in any city or town of the Commonwealth, and the 
entire amount of aid granted if the applicant has no legal 
settlement in any city or town within the Commonwealth. 

The overseers are required under the law to keep accurate 
records on file in their oflSces of all such cases aided; they 
must visit each recipient of Mothers' Aid at least once every 
three months in her own home, making record of family con- 
ditions after each such quarterly visit, and sending a written 
report of same on a prescribed blank to the State Department 
of Public Welfare. Once a year the board of overseers must 
carefully review each case, noting on their records their de- 
termination to continue or discontinue aid as conditions 
indicate. 

The Department of Public Welfare through a woman super- 
visor and ten women visitors supervises the work done and 
the measures taken by the overseers of the poor in respect to 
families aided under this law. They have a right to visit and 
inspect such families in their homes, and they have access to 
all records and reports of such cases kept by the overseers. 
They are expected to consult with the overseers as to the best 
plan for aiding the family. Upon approval of the bills ren- 
dered, the Commonwealth reimburses the cities and towns for 
its share of the expense, thus assuming with the overseers 
joint responsibility for the proper conduct of the case. Once a 
year the Department of Public Welfare is required to render to 



78 DEPAETMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

the Legislature a statement of the work done by its own agents 
and by the overseers of the poor in respect to families aided 
under this law. 

Cost of Living. 
During the past fiscal year the cost of living has remained 
exceedingly high, so that the overseers of the poor have been 
obliged to increase the amounts of aid granted to Mothers' 
Aid families to cover the increased cost of food, clothing, fuel 
and rents. During the latter half of the year there was some 
decline in costs of some few of the necessaries of life, but the 
staple foods, such as milk, butter, eggs, flour, cereals, vege- 
tables, etc., are still well above pre-war prices. Clothing 
costs — especially woolen goods and shoes — are still high. 
Fuel, especially coal, is scarce, high in price, and poor in 
quality, while rents have increased from 10 to 60 per cent. 



Unemployment. 
During the past year wages have been reduced and unem- 
ployment has been the cause of increasing aid in families to 
offset the unemployment of members of the family of working 
age. Many cases, closed because the income from earnings 
of the family had become sufficient to maintain the family 
without public aid, had to be reopened. It is a noticeable fact 
that few who made very high wages during the war saved 
any of their surplus cash. Mills and factories are beginning 
to reopen, but wages are at a lower level. 



Reasons for Closing Cases. 

A study of the reasons for closing 1,392 Mothers' Aid cases 
shows that more than half (726) were closed because the income 
of the family had become sufficient for its needs. 

One hundred seventy-five mothers remarried and 22 mothers 
died. Twenty-four mothers had to go to hospitals or institutions 
for the insane or tubercular for indefinite periods of time. As 
a result Mothers' Aid had to be withdrawn and the children 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 79 

placed with relatives, private societies or with public agencies 
for the placement of dependent children. 

In 53 cases the youngest child became fourteen and the cases 
were, therefore, automatically closed. 

One hundred forty-two mothers moved out of the city or 
town where they had been receiving Mothers' Aid. These 
cases were consequently closed, but many of them were re- 
opened in some other city or town almost immediately, so 
that the cases were continuously aided though recorded as 
closed and reopened. 

Twenty-six cases were transferred from Mothers' Aid to some 
other form of public aid. Twenty-one cases were closed at 
the mother's ow^n request. Sixteen cases were closed because 
they did not conform to our property policy. 

Thirty-six mothers were deemed to be unfit to bring up their 
children. In most of these cases immorality of the mother and 
the birth of illegitimate children was the reason for closing. 
It is illuminating to note that the reputed fathers of most of 
the illegitimate childi^en born to these mothers were male 
lodgers whom the mothers had secretly harbored. These un- 
fortunate cases go far to prove the wisdom of the rule pro- 
hibiting male lodgers in Mothers' Aid families. In 18 cases 
the mothers refused to give up these male lodgers, and the 
Mothers' Aid was consequently withdrawn. 

On the whole, the mothers aided have been worthy of help. 
Many of the families have shown marked improvement in 
standards. The most marked improvement has been made 
in the health of the mothers and their children. Great credit 
is due to the hospitals, dispensaries, clinics and nurses for their 
careful diagnosis and treatment, together with painstaking and 
skillful follow-up work in the homes of the patients. 

Statistics conceening Mothers' Aid. 
A. At the beginning of the fiscal year December 1, 1919, 
there were 3,793 ^ mothers, with 11,860 dependent children, in

SUBDIVISION OF SOCIAL SERVICE. 

During the last ten years the work of the Subdivision of 
Social Service has been extended to include not only cases at 
the State Infirmary but also cases referred to the subdivision 
from other divisions and agencies. The work with the un- 
married mothers at the State Infirmary has developed into the 
following kinds of service : — 

L All discharges of mothers and children from the State Infirmary are 
investigated, and, whenever it is deemed advisable, the discharged per- 
sons are supervised in the community. 

2. The placement of mothers and children discharged and the super- 
vision of them are the most important parts of the service. 

3. An intensive social study is made of all unmarried mothers and 
women infected with syphilis and gonorrhea who are admitted to the 
State Infirmary. 

The cases referred to the Subdivision of Social Service from 
other divisions and agencies are of the following kinds : — 

1. Cases of unmarried mothers are frequently referred by various 
lying-in hospitals throughout the State, especially by the lying-in hos- 
pitals in Boston. 

2. Stranded women in the city are referred by the Travelers' Aid 
Society and the Chardon Street Home. 

3. Persons without funds, who desire to travel to their homes in other 
States or countries, are referred for transportation expenses by various 
social agencies. 

4. Deserted wives who are not eligible for relief under the Mothers' 
Aid law or the temporary aid law are referred for employment and 
placement. 

The work of the subdivision has developed in accordance 
with the following policies : — 

1. Children sent in by overseers of the poor are returned to their 
families or, when special treatment is necessary, to social agencies 
or hospitals. State wards are returned to the Division of Child 
Guardianship. 

2. Babies are placed with their mothers, except in cases where the 
mothers are committed to institutions for the mentally sick. 



86 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

3. Older children who are too difficult to place with their mothers are 
boarded with the Division of Child Guardiansliip at the expense of the 
mother. 

4. Adoptions are not encouraged. 

5. Patients who came from the Industrial School for Girls at Lancas- 
ter, the Women's Reformatory at Sherborn or the schools for the feeble- 
minded are returned to the institution from which they came. 

6. Women are placed at suitable emplo3maent or discharged to relatives. 

7. Every physical examination includes Wassermann tests and ex- 
-aminations for gonorrhea. 

8. Mental examinations are given whenever deemed necessary. 

9. If patients, especially unmarried mothers, are committable as feeble- 
minded, they must remain at the Infirmary until they are cbmmitted. 

10. Mothers must remain at the Infirmary four weeks after confine- 
ment before being discharged. 

11. Investigation of the place of employment is made in the case of 
ever}^ placement. Housework in a good home is recommended, because 
it gives the mother an opportunity^ to nurse her child, and it supplies an 
environment which is a helpful factor in the after-care of the patient. 

Prosecution for Nonsupport. 
1. Putative fathers, when they can be located, are prosecuted for non- 
support, or an agreement for payment of support is secured. Weekly 
payments are demanded. No lump sum settlement under $1,000 is 
deemed adequate. 

Patients at the State Infirmary. 
The patients at the State Infirmary are visited regularly 
once a week. The new patients who have been admitted 
dm'ing the week are seen and their histories are taken. Inves- 
tigations for the disposition of these cases are begun immedi- 
ately. Much friendly visiting is done in all the wards on these 
•days. We have been fortunate in securing a volunteer who 
visits the male hospital regularly. She carries to the sick 
many extra comforts, flowers and eatables. The women's 
tuberculosis ward is visited regularly, and the patients are 
supplied with crochet cotton. This gives the patients a little 
work to do which has made them surprisingly happy. Al- 
though the hospital service is generous, things that are done 
by people from outside the hospital give an extra pleasure 
that is a joy to the sick.

The Placement of Mothers and Babies. 

In the problem of placement of mothers and babies, the life 
of the child is the most important consideration. The mother, 
if possible, should nurse her baby. This is essential for the 
well-being and the future health of the child. The rate of 
infant mortality among illegitimate children is high because 
they are so often separated from their mothers. In the case 
of syphilitic babies the mother's milk often gives the only 
chance for life. Domestic service is the only satisfactory 
occupation in which the mother may give her baby this nursing 
care. We have at present under our supervision one hundred 
fifty mothers and children, some of whbm we have known for 
eight years. Among the babies there have been only two 
deaths. This result is due largely, we believe, to the principle 
of keeping the mother and her child together. The mother can 
give her baby more love and care than the ordinary boarding 
woman. If the mother is dull or even stupid, the baby can, 
under the supervision of a kind woman employer, be well fed 
for the first nine months of life and so can get a good founda- 
tion for health. 

When an older child is placed with the mother in a home, a 
more difficult problem presents itself because of the greater 
activity of the older child and the discipline that becomes 
necessary. The success of such a placement depends largely 
upon the intelligence of the mother and the tact and interest 
of the employer. 



92 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

The love and devotion which a mother gives her child bring 
out the best possible traits of character. The influence of good 
family life upon the mother is extremely important because so 
many unmarried mothers have never known good family life. 
One acknowledged cause of illegitimacy is the broken home. 
The harmonious relationship between the father, mother and 
children establishes an ideal, and prepares the mother for her 
own home, — for every unmarried mother does hope to have 
her own home. The mother has the advantage of the instruc- 
tion which her employer gives in regard to the care and feeding 
of the child. She learns housekeeping and home making. The 
experience is a preparation and a training school for the home 
for which she hopes. 

The mother earns small wages for these days, payments 
ranging from $4 to $10 a week, but she is always paid in 
accordance with her ability. A girl, who is a good manager 
and who can expend her money wisely, finds that she has more 
money to save by earning $5 or $6 a week in a home than 
she would have if she earned $15 in a mill and had to board 
her baby for $4 a week and pay $8 a week for her own board. 
In the domestic service all her expenses are paid, and she has 
$5 or $6 clear. It is often hard to persuade girls of this 
fact, but experience usually teaches them that it is true. 

There are, however, some disadvantages. The work is often 
drudgery, and in the country there are few entertainments. 
Sometimes, unless careful supervision is exercised, the employer 
imposes upon the mother. 

Another fact that is worth considering is the educational 
effect upon the community of placing mothers and babies in 
homes. Society is bound to consider such mothers more 
humanely and intelligently when it sees them self-supporting 
and self-respecting. Society finds, too, that illegitimate chil- 
dren are as bright and lovable as any other children, and that 
they are worthy of all the opportunities which other children 
have. 

Legal Work, 1920. 

No serious defects appear to have arisen from the operation 
of the law of 1913, providing for the support of illegitimate 
children. Any criticism w^hich inight have been directed against 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 93 

the "adequate provision" section, which authorizes lump sums 
under the approval of the court, seems to have been removed 
by the practice of virtually abandoning that form of settlement, 
except in unusual cases, or in those cases where a minimum of 
$1,000 is paid. This is certainly a step in the right direction, 
but even this amount as a minimum is in most cases inadequate 
to provide for the support of a child dm-ing the period of 
probable dependency. Our observation is limited largely to 
the courts of Boston and vicinity. 

Last year only three lump settlements were made. Li one 
case $100 was paid, where it appeared that the child died, 
pending an appeal. In two others, the sums of $500 and $300 
were accepted, respectively, for reasons which were apparent, 
after a careful examination of the cases. These settlements 
were made in court. In about fifteen or more other cases, the 
continuing order for support was imposed by the court. Three 
were settled out of court by an agreement as to periodical 
support, for reasons which the Department believed warranted 
such action, — generally because of the probable interference 
with the family relations of the defendant. Court action was 
taken in several other cases where alleged fathers were not 
located by the police. One indictment was obtained, and one 
other case was referred to the District Attorney of Suffolk 
County for action. These were cases where the alleged fathers 
were located in other States. Several other cases were dropped 
after investigation, and in one case the mother refused to 
prosecute, but, ultimately, through the efforts of the girl's 
visitor, a settlement was effected. In all, more than forty 
cases were investigated, and action taken where it was deemed 
proper and advisable. 

Three petitions for adoption by the husband of the mother 
were presented to the court and allowed. 

There were four commitments to the School for the Feeble- 
minded at Waverley.

Follow-up Work. 

Too much stress cannot be laid upon follow-up work, and 
yet we are not equipped to carry on this most important part 
of the service because it is impossible for three visitors, with 
the help of one transportation agent, to supervise the large 
number of persons under the care of this subdivision. Good 
case work requires intelligent supervision over a long period of 
time; for example, at least a year is required for a woman in- 
fected with syphilis and gonorrhea to adjust herself to the 
environment in which she is placed upon discharge. During 
this period she needs a friend, sometimes often, sometimes 
seldom, but always one upon whom she can depend for work 
and encouragement. Visitors who have to give so much of 
their time to the more difficult cases of the psychopathic and 
the feeble-minded do not get the opportunity to give this 
much-needed help. 

Other problems present themselves in connection with this 
follow-up work. The visitor must have some practical knowl- 
edge of baby hygiene to supplement such help as the employer 
can give, and must also know the general facts about venereal 
diseases and their treatment in order that the patients may be 
referred to hospitals when necessary. The Massachusetts 
General Hospital has helped our patients generously with 
treatment at the clinics of its out-patient department, and has 
prevented many women and children from being returned to 
institutional care. 

DIVISION OF CHILD GUARDIANSHIP. 

Children in Care and Custody of the Division. 
By reference to the tables on page 107 et seq., it appears 
that at the beginning of the last official year, December 1, 1919, 
there were 6,504 children in the care and custody of the Di- 
vision of Child Guardianship, — 297 delinquent, 36 wayward, 
3,416 neglected and 2,755 dependent. There were 845 children 
received during the year, viz., 141 delinquent, 6 wayward, 
322 neglected and 376 dependent. The total number under 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 95 

care during the year was, therefore, 7,349. There were 1,033 
discharged, viz., 190 delinquent, 6 wayward, 426 neglected and 
411 dependent. At the close of the year, November 30, 1920, 
there remained in charge of the Division of Child Guardianship 
6,316 children, classified as: delinquent, 248; wayward, 36; 
neglected, 3,312; and dependent, 2,720. 

Five thousand nine hundred thirty-five of the 6,316 children 
under care November 30, 1920, were over three years of age 
and cared for as follows: in places receiving wages, 742; in 
places free of expense to the State for board, 644; in places 
partly supported by the State, 176; in places fully supported 
by the State, 3,335; at the State Infirmary and other institu- 
tions, not penal, subject to care and treatment, 758; in United 
States service, 108; married, 51; and whereabouts unknown, 
121. 

Three hundred eighty-one children in the total under care 
November 30, 1920, who were under three years of age, were 
classified as follows: in homes free of expense, 29; in homes 
fully supported by the State, 328; at the State Infirmary or 
other institutions, not penal, 24. One hundred fifty-seven in 
this group reached the age of three years during the year.^ 

Childken under Three Years of Age. 
The total number of infants in charge of the Department at 
the end of the official year November 30, 1919, was 421; the 
number received during the year was 225, making the whole 
number supported by the State 646. There remained at the 
close of the official year, November 30, 1920, 381 infants. Of 
the 646 infants supported, 14 were legally adopted, 157 were 
transferred, having reached the age of three years; 49 were 
discharged to parents or relatives, 2 to place of settlement, 

1 In addition to these 6,316 children the Department had under supervision and visitation 
November 30, 1920, 448 inmates of the Lyman School for Boys; 317 inmates of the State Indus- 
trial School for Girls; 247 inmates of the Industrial School for Boys; 2,538 boys and 440 girls in 
the custody of the Trustees of Massachusetts Training Schools outside of the schools; 99 boys 
and 71 girls, inmates of the Massachusetts Hospital School; 37 boys and 78 girls, inmates of the 
State Infirmary, who are either young infants with their mothers, or else under hospital 
treatment; and 1,190 children supported at the expense of the cities and towns, making 
approximately, a total of 11,781 children in the care and custody or under the supervision of the 
Department. 



96 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

9 to courts, 1 to Department of Charities, New York, and 
33 died. Twenty-nine of the remaining 381 were in free 
homes. 

Fifty-three of the 225 infants received were committed by 
the overseers of the poor and 6 by the superintendent of the 
State Infirmary, under the provisions of section 20, chapter 83 
of the Revised Laws. Sixteen of this number were foundlings, 
and the remainder were indigent infants, having no known 
settlement in the Commonwealth. 

Ninety-seven infants were received under the provisions of 
section 36, chapter 83, and 64 were committed as neglected 
under the provisions of chapter 334, as amended by chapter 
131 of the Acts of the year 1909; 2 were removed under the 
provisions of section 26, chapter 83 of the Revised Laws; 3 
were removed under the provisions of section 17 of the same 
chapter. 

The medical visitor and his assistants made 8,071 visits. 
This number includes visits to infant wards boarded in families, 
investigation of homes of applicants for infant wards to board, 
and inspection of homes of applicants for licenses to board 
infants; also, physical examination of children at this office 
and at the Nursery. 

All children are vaccinated when received if there are no 
marks showing a previous successful vaccination. 

There were 371 children admitted to the Nursery. 

Infant Mortality. 

The percentage of mortality for the year, for the whole 
number supported, was 5. 10 + . 

One hundred eighty of the 646 infants supported were under 
one year of age. Twenty-three of this number died, making 
the percentage of deaths for infants under one year of age 
12.77 + . 

Of the 23 deaths of infants under one year of age at the 
time of admission to care, 3 died after reaching the age of one 
year, making the actual number of deaths of infants under one 
year 20, and the percentage 11.11 + .

The continued low mortality rate of the past ten years 
would seem to indicate the efficiency of the present system of 
boarding infants and the methods whereby they are super- 
vised. Previous to the adoption of the present system, the 
hospital was considered to be the place where sick infants 
could get more scientific care and a more skillfully modified 
formula. The steadily decreasing mortality rate would seem 
to disprove this theory, at least in the experience of this 
Department. Sick infants are attended at their foster homes 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 99 

by the family physician, while the departmental nurse, or 
visitor, makes frequent and, if necessary, daily visits until re- 
CO very. 

From the above it can be seen that out of our total number 
of deaths 4 occurred at the State Infirmary, 6 occurred at other 
hospitals, and 10 died of uncontrollable diseases or conditions, 
so that in reality only 3 deaths can be charged to the present 
system of boarding out infants. 

Children over Three Years of Age. 

At the close of the fiscal year, November 30, 1920, children 
over three years of age in custody of this division numbered 
5,935,-3,304 boys and 2,631 girls. There were 777 admis- 
sions, including 620 new cases and 157 transferred from the 
subdivision for children under three years of age. Tw^enty- 
five died, 244 became of age, and 656 were otherwise discharged. 
The net decrease in population for the year is 148, or 2.4 per 
cent. 

There is no doubt that the enforcement of prohibition is 
responsible to some extent for the decrease; and many parents 
whose children were in custody have recently provided homes 
to which their children have been returned with every prospect 
of suitable care and provision in the future. Another impor- 
tant cause for the fewer admissions of children is the fact that 
the year was one of industrial prosperity, wages were high and 
employment general. 

All applications to care for children under supervision of 
this division are made in writing. In the cases of children 
under twelve years of age, the applications are given immedi- 
ately to the visitors for investigation. References from reliable 
sources in the community are required. School and church 
facilities, the general moral tone of the community, as w^ell as 
the purely physical features of the home, are carefully ex- 
amined. 

The finding of good boarding homes is still a serious problem, 
although many desirable ones were placed at our disposal 
during the year. Several homes were lost to the division, 
because of family illnesses or for financial reasons. While we 
have a waiting list of homes for one child only, we need special 



100 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

homes for rachitic and undernourished children, as well as 
those in which families of three children or more may be 
placed. 

Applications for the care or services of the older children 
(twelve to twenty-one) are handled differently. General indus- 
trial conditions, the demand for labor and the scarcity of 
untrained w^orkers have made the calls upon our division so 
numerous that only as we have needed homes have we con- 
sidered those applications on file. This accounts for the large 
number of unfinished applications in this class.

It is most important that the best educational opportunities 
be provided for our wards who are handicapped to a certain 
extent by dependency. Our boys and girls are encouraged 
and assisted in their efforts to secure higher education, and at 
the present time 5 boys and 4 girls are attending college 
without expense to the State, 2 of whom are working for 
wages while continuing their studies. Three girls attend 
normal school, also without expense to the State. 

Two hundred ninety-seven, or 27.4 per cent of the 1,083 
boys over fourteen years of age, are attending school, 206 of 
whom are in grammar schools, 77 in high schools, and 9 in 
trade schools, and the 5 before mentioned in college. Besides 
these, 13 are supplementing their education by attending 
evening school. Included in the above number are 193 at 
board and 75 free, clothing being provided for 24 of the latter. 
Twenty of the older boys are receiving wages for work done 
out of school hours. The remainder (22) have been permitted 
to return to their own homes under supervision of this division. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. 

The proportion of girls over fourteen years attending school i* 
greater than that of boys, being 52.4 per cent, or 414 of the^ 
790 girls in our care. The girls also show a higher average 
in high school registration, 170, or 41 per cent against 25.9 per 
cent for boys. One hundred ninety-five girls are still in 
grammar school, 13 in trade schools, and 3 in normal schools. 
Thirty girls also covet an education enough to attend evening 
school. Fifty-seven of the 414 attending school are in addition 
receiving wages, 45 are free of expense to the State, 112 partly 
free, 174 at board, and 26 under supervision in their own homes.. 

Visitors to older girls attended 159 cases in the juvenile 
sessions of courts where no woman probation officer is employed. 
Twelve cases were for waywardness, in which the disposition 
is the same as in neglect cases. Ten of these were given pro- 
bation, and 2 were committed to the Department of Public 
Welfare. The remaining 147 were delinquent, and the com- 
plaints were as follows: stubbornness, 89; sex offender, 26; 
larceny, 11; school offender, 6; assault and battery, 8; run- 
away, 2; injury to property, 2; drunkenness, 2; 'profanity, 1. 
Twenty-three of these girls were committed to the Industrial 
School for Girls at Lancaster, 14 were given suspended sen- 
tences to the same institution, and 39 were placed on probation 
in their homes or in other institutions. One girl, who had 
been in our care as neglected, was charged with delinquency 
and recommitted to this Department. If this girl proves unfit 
for community placing, she may be transferred to the Industrial 
School through the authority invested in this Department. 
The remaining cases were placed on file, dismissed or continued 
without findings. 

In nearly all cases of stubbornness brought before the courts 
investigation showed sex offences. The element of neglect by 
parents appeared to be the primary cause of delinquency in a 
great majority of the cases. 

While this small number shows only a fractional part of the 
cases of girls brought before the courts of the Commonwealth 
each year, it indicates that a very important work is being 
done to alleviate and minimize juvenile delinquency. 

Our policy in the care of the feeble-minded has necessarily 
remained unchanged. Boarding homes, under close super- 



/

7"ision, are still maintained for a group of boys and girls who 
/are awaiting admission to the always overcrowded schools. 

On November 30, 1920, there were 70 girls from eight to 
twenty years and 51 boys from six to se\^nteen years so placed; 
while during the year it was necessary to send to the State 
Infirmary, as our only resource, 32 boys and 19 girls. Twelve 
needed medical treatment; the others, after a trial, were found 
to be unsuitable for family life. 

Seventeen girls, after a season of training in special homes, 
were given a trial at domestic work at small wages and are 
still apparently making good. This type of girl is best placed, 
evidently happiest and does her best work in the home where 
there is a little child to care for. Her maternal instinct is 
strong and here she can be most closely supervised. It is 
iDelieved more could be given such an opportunity if frequent 
visitation and sufficient supervision could be assured. 

Six girls are on probation with their relatives and giving no 
trouble. 

Eighty per cent of the girls in care are over fourteen years 
old. Twenty-one girls and 15 boys attend school, but their 
progress is negligible. 

There were committed last year to the School at Waverley 
18 boys and 5 girls, and to the Wrentham State School 4 boys 
and 15 girls. The outlook for the coming year is more hopeful, 
there being now room for 30 admissions to Wrentham; but 
^s these are to be selected from a group of improvable school 
cases, — little girls from seven to fourteen years, — the great 
problem of the grown feeble-minded girl in the community is 
not solved. 

Investigating Department. 

Twelve years ago the investigating department came into 
Leing for the purpose of giving more careful consideration to 
the applications for the care of the dependent child. The 
value of the work accomplished has long since been demon- 
strated, yet it is always of interest to study somewhat in detail 
the methods by which results are obtained. 

Diagnosis in medicine is now acknowledged to be the founda- 
tion upon which treatment and ultimate cure rests. In no 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF DEPARTMENT. i03 

other field can the word be more accurately used than in social 
work. Unless the problem is studied in all its phases, there 
can be no enduring constructive solution. 

The investigating department finds its chief problem that 
of diagnosis, and the object of its research is to determine 
whether a child is really dependent, and, as such, should become 
a State ward. Many questions are involved in reaching a 
satisfactory conclusion, and many friendly contacts must be 
established, that through co-operation the desired results may 
be attained. This is done by no new form of case work, yet 
it remains that case work is the whole concern of the investi- 
gator. 

The application is the first step in the process. It can usually 
be found to fall into one of three classes: the child in a family 
where one or both parents is either mentally or physically 
incapacitated; the foundling, or the child abandoned in a 
private boarding home; and the child of an unmarried mother. 
If the family circle is broken by the loss of the mother, for the 
average case there is but one solution, — care for the children 
with relatives or their reception as State wards, the expense, 
so far as possible, to be borne by the father. If it is the father 
who is missing from the family group, there is available for the 
mother Mother's Aid, supervision by a family welfare society, 
or arrangements may be made for day nursery care. Such 
plans must be carried out through the initiative of the investi- 
gator. 

All the detective instincts of a worker in this group of 
necessity are aroused when she handles the case of a child 
abandoned in a boarding home by its parents. Often the clues 
are meager, and the joy which comes after the mystery has 
been unravelled is like none other in the work. It is often 
necessary to take action against the parents, which involves 
familiarity with court proceedings. 

The problem of the illegitimate child is most perplexing. 
Here, too, it may be necessary to have recourse to the courts 
to establish paternity, and to obtain funds to supplement the 
amount the mother can contribute toward support. Co-opera- 
tion with other agencies and with relatives is always advan- 



< 



10 i: DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

ttageous, so that the child may, if advisable, be kept with the 
mother and thereby become a restraining influence. 

These problems come to the attention of the Department by 
application from the parent, interested friend or a social agency. 
Many times the application involves a first interview, but 
since the person who receives the application is not the one 
who is to solve the problem, this interview may have to be 
repeated. No matter how freely an applicant may talk in the 
office, there is much revealed from an interview in the person's 
own environment which is of invaluable assistance in illumi- 
nating facts already obtained. 

From this point on, it is a matter of gathering together from 
every available source those facts which will make a complete 
picture, if we may so describe it, of the problem to be solved. 
The ease with which these facts are learned, and the amount 
of material so gathered, depends largely on the kind of co-op- 
eration secured. It is a matter of personality to a great 
extent, but behind that must be qualities such as tact, per- 
sistence, patience, friendliness, and, above all, absolute fairness 
and clear judgment.

It is gratifying to note the steady increase each year in the 
receipts for contributory support shown in the following table. 

The payments in most instances are very small, and, although 
the principal purpose of the Department in originating this 
practice was to place the responsibility of support upon the 
parents whenever justice demanded, the total amount of the 
collections for the past year nearly equalled the cost of admin- 
istration in this division. 

Payments are received from parents upon voluntary agree- 
ment, also from probation officers of the various courts upon 
orders issued at time of commitment; in some cases, when 
parents have been able but unwdlling to contribute, we have 
been obliged to prosecute for nonsupport. 

Various cities and towns are paying full support for ap- 
proximately 300 settled minor children.

Licensed Boarding Houses for Infants. 
During the last official year 331 licenses to maintain boarding 
houses for infants were granted under the provisions of General 
Laws^ chapter 119^, section 2, in 87 cities and towns, in addition 
to the 335 licenses in force at the expiration of the previous 
year. Three hundred eight licenses expired by the one-year 
limitation; 39 were cancelled on account of change of resi- 
dence, 1 was cancelled in order to increase number of infants 
allowed, and 1 was revoked because boarding woman was 
incapable of caring for 2 infants; 22 were withdrawn; and 317

licenses, permitting the boarding of 660 infants in 72 towns, 
remained in force November 30, 1920. These represent the 
licensed homes not only of infants supported by the Common- 
wealth, but of those under the age of two years placed out by 
parents and many private agencies. 

The following table shows the number of licenses issued, the 
number of cities and towns where licensees reside, the number 
of licenses expired, revoked, cancelled and refused, the whole 
number in force, etc., for the year ending November 30, 1920, 
and for twenty-eight preceding years : —

During the past year the State nurses have made 1,613 
visits to infants placed in homes under private supervision 
and the supervision of societies. (Visits to infants under the 
supervision of the Department of Public Welfare are not 
included.) 

It has been necessary to take court action in a number of 
private cases where laws governing the protection of infants 
(chapter 119) were willfully violated, and strict supervision is 
being kept in many instances.

DIVISION OF HOUSING AND TOWN PLANNING. 

The Homestead Commission, established under authority of 
the Acts of 1911, chapter 607, as a temporary commission, and 
made permanent by the Acts of 1913, chapter 595, had as 
members at various times the following persons : — 



Charles F. Gettemy 
Kenyon L. Butterfield 
Augustus L, Thorndike 
Clement F. Coogan 
Mrs. Eva W. White 
Warren Dunham Foster 



Henry Sterling 
Cornelius A. Parker 
Arthur C. Comey 
George Chandler Whipple 
Walter L. McMenimen 
George A. Bacon 



The history of its work in the study and promotion of good 
housing and town planning will be found in the seven published 
reports of the Homestead Commission. 

Under the consolidation act^ of 1919 the Homestead Com- 
mission was abolished and its functions transferred to the 
Department of Public Welfare. 

The statute^ gives the Commissioner of Public Welfare and 

1 General Acts of 1919, chapter 350, section 90. 

2 Chapter 121, General Laws, sections 23 to 27, is as follows: — 

Section 23. The commissioner and board shall investigate defective housing, the evils re- 
sulting therefrom and the work being done in the commonwealth and elsewhere to remedy them, 
study the operation of building laws and laws relating to tenement houses, encourage the crea-

the Advisory Board very broad powers in regard to housing 
and town planning. Because no additional machinery was 
given to the Department for exercising these functions, the 
work begun by the Homestead Commission has not developed 
satisfactorily since the reorganization. 

The Department maintains a bureau of information and 
keeps in touch with activities in the United States and in other 
countries. It furnishes information and literature to chambers 
of commerce, real estate boards, legislative committees, housing 
companies, boards of health, city planning commissions, 
libraries, universities, manufacturers, engineers, lawyers and 
architects. 

A library is maintained by the Department, included in 
which are reports of activities in other States and in other 
countries, pamphlets, books and periodicals which deal with 
the social as well as with the technical side of town planning 
matters. 

A file of maps and plans, which includes plans made by the 
local boards and submitted by them to their local governments, 
is kept by the Department. The planning boards of Boston 
and Quincy have been most active in forwarding copies of such 
plans to us, and we urge that other boards, when special maps 
or plans are made by them, submit blue prints to this division. 

tion of local planning boards, gather information relating to town planning for the use of such 
boards, and promote the formation of organizations intended to increase the number of whole- 
some homes for the people. 

Section 24. The commissioner and board may, with the consent of the governor and council, 
take by eminent domain or purchase in behalf of and in the name of the commonwealth tracts 
of land for the purpose of relieving congestion of population and providing homesteads or small 
houses and plots of ground for mechanics, laborers, wage earners of any kind, or others, citizens 
of the commonwealth; and may hold, improve, subdivide, build upon, sell, repurchase, manage 
and care for such land and the buildings constructed thereon, in accordance with such terms 
and conditions as they may determine. 

Section 25. The commissioner and board may sell such land or any parts thereof, with or 
without buildings thereon, for cash or upon such instalments, terms and contracts and subject 
to such restrictions and conditions as they may determine, and may take mortgages upon said 
land, with or without buildings thereon, for such portion of the purchase price and upon such 
terms as they deem advisable, but no tract of land shall be sold for less than its cost, including 
the cost of any buildings thereon. All proceeds from the sale of land and buildings or other 
sources shall be paid to the commonwealth. 

Section 26. The commissioner and board shall call the attention of mayors and city councils 
and selectmen in towns having planning boards, to the provisions of sections seventy to seventy- 
two, inclusive, of chapter forty-one; and it shall furnish information and suggestions from time 
to time to city governments, selectmen and planning boards, which may tend to promote the 
purposes of said sections and of section twenty-three of this chapter. 

Section 27. The commissioner shall make an annual report of the acts of the commissioner 
and board under the four preceding sections.

Housing Experiment at Lowell. 

TKe housing experiment conducted by the Homestead Com- 
mission at Lowell has automatically become a part of the work 
of this Department. 

The Department employs an agent in Lowell who collects 
the monthly payments from the piu*chasers, transmits requests 
for needed repairs to the Department, and instructs the pur- 
chasers in gardening. 

The undeveloped land has been divided into plots approxi- 
mately 100 by 45 feet, which have been let to the owners 
or neighbors for the cost of plowing and harrowing. 

A statement of the financial status at the close of the fiscal 
year follows : —

City and Town Planning. 

The statutes quoted on page 136 require the Commissioner 
and the Advisory Board to encourage the creation of local 
planning boards and to furnish them information and sug- 
gestions. Planning boards are required to be appointed in 
every city and town having a population of more than 10,000 
and may be appointed in towns having a population of less 
than 10,000. In cities the board must be appointed by the 
mayor, subject to confirmation by the council, and in towns the 
board must be elected at the annual town meeting.^ 

Two new planning boards have been established during the 
year, — one in Fall River, the other in North Adams. 

Reports have been received from 35 boards, showing the 
great variety of recommendations for improvements of sections 
of towns, for development of streets, parks, playgrounds and 
school sites, regulation of billboards, establishment of building 
lines, housing improvements, surveys and zoning plans. These 
reports are summarized in the Department's report on housing 
and town planning, which is published separately. 

1 Chapter 41, General Laws, sections 70 to 72, is as follows: — 

Section 70. Every city and every town having a population of more than ten thousand at 
the last preceding national or state census shall, and towns having a population of less than ten 
thousand may, create a planning board, which shall make careful studies of the resources, possi- 
bilities and needs of the town, particularly with respect to conditions injurious to the public 
health or otherwise in and about rented dwellings, and make plans for the development of the 
municipality, with special reference to proper housing of its inhabitants. In cities the said board 
shall be appointed by the mayor, subject to confirmation by the council, and in towns shall be 
elected at the annual town meeting. 

Section 71. Every planning board shall make a report annually to the city council or to the 
annual town meeting, giving information regarding the condition of the town and any plans or 
proposals for its development and estimates of the cost thereof. Every such planning board 
shall file with the department of public welfare a copy of each report made by it. 

Section 72. Cities and towns may make ordinances and by-laws for carrying out the pur- 
poses of section seventy, and they may appropriate money therefor. The planning board of a 
town may be authorized by vote of the town to act as park commissioners therein, and may be 
vested with all the powers and duties of park commissioners in towns.

REPORT 



Depaetment of Public Welfaee 



Part II 



Chaeitable Coepoeations 

The Department of Public Welfare endorses no private charitable 
organization or agency. This rule is absolute, regardless of the known 
standing of any such society. Inspection and the publication of the 
annual return in this volume do not mean approval; on the contrary, 
inspection may mean the discovery of conditions calling for condemna- 
tion. No agency is warranted, therefore, in using the fact of inspection 
in such manner as to lead the public to believe that the Department has 
approved or in any sense reconamends its work. 



PRIVATE CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. 



Government supervision of private charitable corporations is 
provided in three legislative enactments, the first of which 
requires the Department of Public Welfare to investigate all 
petitions for charitable charters, while the second and third call 
for annual inspection and annual reporting. In the following 
pages of this part of the report the functions of the Depart- 
ment and the year's work under these several statutes are 
explained. This statement is followed by abstracts of the an- 
nual returns of the various charities in a form intended to serve 
as a handbook of all the incorporated charities of the Com- 
monwealth. 

Investigation of Charitable Organizations seeking Incorporation. 

General Laws, Chapter 180, Section 6. 

Before making and issuing a certificate for the incorporation of 
a charitable corporation the state secretary shall also forward the 
statement described in the preceding section to the department 
of public welfare, which shall immediately make an investigation 
as to the applicants for incorporation and as to the purposes 
thereof, and any other material facts relative thereto, and shall 
give them a pubhc hearing, notice of which shall be published 
once a week for three successive weeks in some paper published 
in the county where the corporation is to have its principal ofiice 
or rooms, and if said office or rooms are to be in Boston, in some 
Boston daily paper, the last publication to be at least three days 
before the day set for the hearing, and shall forthwith report to 
the state secretary all the facts ascertained by it. If it appears 
to him from said report or otherwise that the probably purpose 
of the formation of the proposed corporation is to cover any 
illegal business, or that the persons asking for incorporation are 
not suitable persons, from lack of financial ability or from any 
other cause, he shall refuse to issue his certificate. If he refuses, 
the applicants may appeal to the superior court, which shall hear 
the case and finally determine whether or not the certificate of 
incorporation shall be issued. 



iv DEPART]\IEXT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

During the year ending Xovember 30, 1920, 58 applications 
for charters have been referred by the Secretary of the Com- 
monwealth. This Department has investigated, given hearings 
and reported on 60 applications, including 3 received prior to the 
beginning of the year. One application was received too late to 
be investigated before Xovember 30, 1920. Forty-eight appli- 
cations, as listed below, have been acted upon by the Secretary 
of State. In five cases the petition was withdrawn before the 
hearing. At the beginning of the year 7 cases were pending. 
Report has been made on 3 of these, and 4 of them are still 
pending.

since the passage of the law (March 7, 1910, to November 30, 
1920) the Department has reported upon 593 applications for 
charters, 490 of which were granted, and 74 refused ; 3 were 
withdrawn and 26 had not been acted upon by the Secretary of 
State up to November 30, 1920. In 59 other cases the applica- 
tions were withdrawn before investigation. 

Inspection of Charitable Corporations. 

Chapter 121 of the General Laws requires the Department of 
Public Welfare to make annual inspection of charitable corpora- 
tions which consent to said inspection. The text of the law as 
included in section 7 of the said chapter is as follows : — 

General Laws, Chapter 121, Section 7. 

. . . It [Department of Public Welfare] shall upon the request 
or v\dth the consent of a charitable corporation which, under sec- 
tion twelve of chapter one hundred and eighty, is required to 
make an annual report to said department, at least once a year, 
visit and inspect the institution or investigate the \vork of such 
corporation. . . . 



vi DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 17. 

Two hundred forty-one inspections have been made during 
the past year involving numerous conferences with directors and 
many visits to institutions. 

There have been 407 inquiries in regard to particular agencies 
and general matters connected with the field of private charity. 

Number and Classification of Incorporated Charities in Massa- 
chusetts. 

There are at the present time more than 1,000 corporations 
chartered as charities under the laws of the Commonwealth. 
Of these, substantially three-fourths remain in active operation 
and make annual returns to this Department as required by 
law. 

Of the 888 charitable corporations which made returns to this 
Department during 1920, 98 are homes for the aged; 114 are 
child-helping agencies; 182 are hospitals or other institutions 
for aiding the sick; 159 are agencies giving family aid; and 115 
are organizations doing neighborhood and club work. The 
remaining 220 corporations form a miscellaneous group chiefly 
civic or eleemosynary in their nature. 

An analysis of the returns made in 1920 shows the total 
capital, real and personal, of all these charities to be 
$134,883,599.36. Incumbrances on real estate came to but 
$3,202,814.61. The total receipts for the year were $27,220,- 
415.36, of which $10,315,500.79 came from beneficiaries and 
$3,704,349.21 from investments. The total outgo for all pur- 
poses for the year was $25,628,927.11. These agencies reported 
14,510 paid employees. Instances of aid, though worthless as 
a total for statistical purposes, indicate that this group of chari- 
ties during the year in question rendered some sort of charitable 
assistance to over 1,000,000 separate individuals. 

Financial Administration of Charitable Trusts. 

As noted above, 863 social agencies in Massachusetts reported 
14,510 paid employees, and a total outgo of $25,628,927.11. 
Their showing on instances of aid rendered indicates that about 
1 in every 4 of the entire population of the Commonwealth 
receives aid or charitable benefit of some sort. 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. vii 

So extensive a service requires careful financial administra- 
tion if waste and wrongdoing are to be guarded against; and 
this demand is all the more insistent when the trust nature of 
the enterprise is taken into account. 

The Trust Nature of a Private Charity. 
All moneys or values held to a charitable use constitute a 
trust fund for the benefit of the indefinite public. The court, 
sitting in equity, may assume control of any such fund upon 
proof of its maladministration, its misapplication, or the inap- 
propriateness of its application due to change in the need or 
otherwise; and may devise a new scheme cy pres for its admin- 
istration. The directors of a social agency, therefore, are 
trustees in charge of property which belongs to the indefinite 
public, dedicated to a charitable use. 

The Need for Systematic Care. 
The trustee of a large estate belonging to a private individual 
is bound by certain business practices which are for the protec- 
tion of himself as well as of his beneficiary. Thus a well- 
recognized routine is followed in the safekeeping of stocks, 
bonds and other securities. Securities are watched faithfully to 
see that by reason of changes in the market they do not become 
unprofitable. The best business judgment is used, in buying 
and selling stocks and bonds, to gain a maximum of return con- 
sistent with safety. Periodic accounts of the condition of the 
trust are submitted, and these accounts must be complete, clear 
and accurate to the last detail. In the case of the charitable 
use the beneficiary is not the person helped, viewed as an 
isolated individual; it is the great public — the community. 
The charitable enterprise is therefore pretty much everybody's 
business. In this aspect of the case there is a moral obligation 
attaching to its administration far greater than the usual degree 
of responsibility attaching to a private trust. It must account 
to the public; and that account must tell the whole truth and 
nothing but the truth. Its language must be unmistakably 
clear. 



viii DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. [P. D. 1

Keeping the Books. 

If the foregoing considerations are sound, the method of 
keeping the books of a charitable agency is of first importance. 
Bookkeeping methods must vary to some extent due to differ- 
ences in the kind of agency; but there are some basic considera- 
tions which must be the same for all. 

The total actual value of the trust fund or property should be 
clearly stated. 

Receipts should be itemized to show the several major sources 
of income; for instance: from or on account of beneficiaries; 
from capital investments as income; borrowings; donations 
and contributions restricted to the capital account or to a 
special service; and donations to general funds without re- 
striction. 

Expenditures should not be lumped together so that the only 
intelligible figure is the total. It is wise to set out items of 
actual relief or benefits separately, so that items purely admin- 
istrative may be grouped together. This may be effected by 
classifying expenditures into "administrative" and "charitable." 

If these basic concepts be followed always with a full appre- 
ciation of the trust responsibility — let the enterprise in ques- 
tion be ever so humble — the result will mean less waste in 
charitable undertakings, a higher degree of efficiency, and a 
clearer understanding on the part of the workers of the real 
social values which their effort represents. 

Annual Reports of Charitable Corporations. 

The law provides that every charitable corporation must 
make to this Department an annual report on or before the 
first day of November in each year, and further provides that 
if any corporation fails for two successive years to make the 
report, the Supreme Court may decree its dissolution. The 
Department will make a special effort during the coming year 
to secure compliance of all charitable corporations with this 
law. The text of the law is as follows : — 



Part II.l CHARITABLE CORPORATIOXS. ix 



General Laws, Chapter 180, Section 12. 

A charitable corporation whose personal property is exempt 
from taxation shall annually, on or before November first, make 
to the department of public welfare a written report for its last 
financial year, showing its property, its receipts and expenditures, 
the whole number and the average number of its beneficiaries 
and such other information as the department requires. If any 
corporation subject to this section fails for two successive years 
to file said report, the supreme judicial court, upon application 
by the department, after notice and hearing, may decree a disso- 
lution of the corporation. 

Reports. 

Abstracts of reports of corporations for the last financial 
year available are given on the following pages. The reports 
are arranged by towns, in alphabetical order under each town. 

Reports from 280 corporations which do not fall strictly 
within the scope of the Department's publication are on file, 
but are not here printed. Their names will be found in the 
alphabetical list of reporting corporations.
